Watford winger Deulofeu residing with physio to accelerate recovery

Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu is residing with a physio to speed up his recovery from knee surgery.

After heading home to Barcelona for the surgery, the winger made the choice to move in with his physiotherapist when it became clear that tight lockdown measures would soon be implemented in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking on the official club podcast, he said: "I'm in his home. We expected, before the country stopped, that if I have to go at home and my physio has to come two times per day to me, it would be impossible. We expected it [the lockdown] so I'm here [at his house].

"I'm really comfortable and I can do physio two times per day and we can get better every day."
