The recent release of Thierno Seydi, the agent of Ismaila Sarr, announcing the departure of his colt from the English club Watford, has not been to the liking of the manager of the Hornets, who are going through a bad patch in the Premier League.
Questioned on this issue, in a press conference before the game against Leed scheduled for Saturday, Roy Hodgson replied to Seydi: « I do not approve, but it has nothing to do with Sarr. He can’t do much about it. I don’t think it’s helpful for agents to come out and say things like that, at a time when the club is paying his salary and counting on him. Maybe it’s just that he’s trying to secure some income, » Hodgson said.
According to the English coach, the Lions’ striker is always ready to support the club to ensure the maintenance. « In our conversations, he always shows me his commitment. He is very focused and he tries to do everything to help us to maintain the club. So, the things that his agent says, I hope it does not affect him, » he confided.
Watford is currently 19th in the Premier League, with only 22 pts.
