Cape Town - Watford
manager Javi Gracia is confident he can help the club turn their
fortunes around after losing for the fourth time in six games on
Gracia took charge at Vicarage Road on January 21 after the sacking
of Marco Silva, but suffered a 1-0 defeat at Southampton in the FA Cup
fourth round which led to a section of traveling supporters angrily
shouting at the players as they left the pitch.
There were also chants throughout the game criticising the team's
poor performances, but Gracia remains focused on the job at hand and
believes the problems can be ironed out.
"I do not understand many things they sang. I can only do one thing
and that is to try to make the team play better and get good results,"
the Spaniard was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.
"This way I am sure the fans will be happier and all the problems, if
there are problems, will disappear. It was not a good match. We need to
improve many things."
The Hornets next travel to the Bet365 Stadium to face Stoke in an English Premiership clash on Wednesday.
Kick-off is at 22:00 (SA time).
