Watford boss Claudio Ranieri has hinted that he will speak to Nigeria international William Troost-Ekong over yesterday defeat at Brentford.
The Italian was visibly disappointed after his side 2-1 loss to Brentford in a Premier League tie at the Brentford Community Stadium on Friday night.
Six minutes to the game, Pontus Jansson put Brentford ahead in between two Watford players including Ekong who headed the ball into his own net.
Before the stoppage time the Super Eagles defender gave away a penalty for a reckless challenge on Ghoddos which cost Ranieri’s side a point in the game they were leading 1-0 with seven minutes left on the clock.
While the loss to Brentford is bad one for Watford, the Nigeria international was rightly pointed as the scapegoat for the defeat.
Ranieri speaking to the media after the game said: “Now we will see everything, I will speak with Troost-Ekong.”
“Also I will have to see if there are some played ready to play because my defensive line is not ready to play. Kabasele tonight wasn’t ready, Sierralta isn’t ready. I have to see.”
While Ranieri has pointed out players who are not ready, Troost-Ekong has shown he is not ready to lead the Hornets back line having committed errors upon errors since the start of the season.
