Watford boss Mazzarri: Deeney just like Maradona!

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has likened Troy Deeney to Diego Maradona!

Deeney delivered a knock-out goal in the 4-2 win over West Ham last week.

Mazzarri was bowled over by it and said: “What he did against West Ham was great.

“I've only seen a few players do it and one of them was Maradona. To score a goal like that is incredible but what I ask from the squad and especially to Deeney as he is captain, is to continue for every game, and give 100%."
