Watford’s first Premier League win of the season left manager Quique Sanchez Flores delighted, with the boss hailing his players.
Odion Ighalo scored the first home goal of the campaign for the Hornets, who managed to keep Swansea at bay to record a famous victory on Saturday.
Following his first victory as manager after being appointed in the summer, Flores was full of praise for his players when speaking to Sky Sports.
“I am really happy with the first win. We tried before in the first matches and we played against a really good team in Swansea. I’m really happy with the team. Finally we have a victory.
“We have to be very happy with the performance.The players are working so hard every day for the last two and half months, and we deserve our first win.”
Flores reserved his opinion on the sending off of Valon Behrami midway through the second half, choosing instead to concentrate on his side’s battling victory.
“It was also very difficult to play 25 minutes with one player less.
“I don’t know about the sending-off – my position was far away to see – so I prefer to have a look at the replay to have an opinion.
“But it’s important to score the first goal here at Vicarage Road. We controlled the beginning of the match but in the second half we had a few problems with control of the ball, and Swansea played very well.”
