The Pozzo family remain committed to Watford after missing out on Premier League promotion on Sunday.

Watford sporting director Gianluca Nani says the Udinese owners will continue their stake in the London side.

"We are here for the long-term," he told Udinese Channel. "There is no expiry date on this project.

"After losing in extra-time in the most decisive game of the season, of course the overriding emotion is bitterness.

"But we remain proud of the work done by [Coach Gianfranco] Zola and his boys.

"This defeat is not the end - we will start again next season.

"We have to congratulate Crystal Palace - they deserved to win."
