​Watford keeper Bachmann not disappointed about loan opportunities

Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann insists that he is not disappointed at having to stay at the club.

The Austrian wanted to move on loan so he could compete for a spot in his national team's Euro 2020 squad.

But that did not happen, and he knows the tournament is now beyond him.

Bachman has only played two FA Cup games for Watford this season, as he is behind Ben Foster in the pecking order.

But Bachmann is happy to do what is necessary for the team.

"It's one of these things, it wasn't really down to me. Obviously as a footballer you want to play games, but it is what it is, I'm happy to be here," he told reporters about the transfer window.

"We're supporting each other and that's all that matters at the moment, to get results for us, to get the best out of everyone and that's where we're at.

"I'm still only 25, I've got a couple of Euros and World Cups to go to hopefully. I'm not playing so that [going to the Euros] won't happen, but I'm not really too disappointed because obviously the main focus is always your club and it just would've been a nice little treat to go to the Euros, but I'm sure there'll be more to come in the next few years."
