Watford striker Obbi Oulare: I'll play for Standard Liege this year

Watford striker Obbi Oulare admits he's joined Standard Liege injured.

Oulare has signed for Standard on-loan, though he will have to wait to see action after arriving still recovering from hip surgery.

"It is going very well at the moment," said Oulare. "I feel good, I do not have any pain anymore. I was operated on four months ago and that operation went well. Now we're waiting until I can play matches again.

"I have to be patient, but in principle I will return to the field in 2018."

Standard chief Michel Preud'homme played an important role in his arrival: "I was happy when he called. Like (Maxime) Lestienne, perhaps I should have listened to him more in the past. "
