Who is Watford captain?
The captain of the newly promoted side, Watford is Troy Deeney. The 33-year-old will lead the line again for the Hornets in the English Premier League in 2021/22. The striker will wear the armband and walk out of the tunnel against Aston Villa on Saturday, 14th August 2021.
Rising through the ranks of Walsall, the Watford striker joined Halesowen on a loan deal. He returned to Walsall in 2010 and joined Watford in a deal worth €725,000. He joined Watford but took a career break for a while to recuperate from injury.
He joined the team back in 2012 and is in eleventh season with Hornets. He has already played 387 games for the team and has 132 goals to his name. Also, he has 51 assists to his name. In the 2020/21 Championship season, he had seven goals to his name whereas he also had three assists to his name.
In the recent interview, he seemed excited to return the Premier League:
The excitement [of playing in the Premier League] is completely different to be totally honest. First time around there was a nervous energy as to whether I could do it. I'd been doing well beforehand in the Championship, but could I actually do it in the Premier League?
