Watford boss Flores: Capoue a new player after failed Tottenham stint

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores believes Etienne Capoue is a much-changed player since his move from Tottenham.

The French midfielder joined the Hornets int he summer after a below par two seasons with Spurs and his performances this season have certainly impressed new boss Flores.

"He's not thinking about Tottenham," said the Spaniard in the wake of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

"He's completely happy at Watford. When we talk about football we talk about Watford. We talk about his performances this year.

"He's a new player today which is very good news for us, to incorporate this type of player. It's amazing to observe that this player is going to play football, to organise, to stop players, for us it is good."
