Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann has again shared his ‘frustration’ with his lack of playing time at the club this season.

Bachmann was the undisputed number one at Vicarage Road after coming into the team in January last season.

A series of impressive performances and an even more impressive tally of just 13 goals conceded and 13 clean sheets in 23 Championship games meant it was a position he had fully earned by the end of the campaign.

He started all Watford’s first four Premier League games this season, and then missed out on September’s trip to Norwich.

He hasn’t been seen since, with Ben Foster the first choice under former manager Xisco and retaining that status under his replacement Claudio Ranieri.

It’s something Bachmann is less than happy about and has made clear before now, indicating he will be looking for a move in January if it doesn’t change.

That’s something he’s now reiterated, claiming that his Watford absence has nothing to do with sporting reasons.

“My situation is temporary; it has little to do with sport.  It’s a frustrating situation,” Kicker report him saying.

“As a player, it’s always difficult when you’re not playing. If it’s for non-sporting reasons, it makes it even harder. It’s twice as frustrating.

“The transfer window will be open again in January. Then, if no solution has been found by then, you have to see that I can go back to work.

“You will see that in the next six to eight weeks. I train for myself so that the standard stays high; the level stays high. I can’t do more at the moment.”
