Deeney Addresses Swathes of Watford Rumours Following Pearson Sacking

Not even remotely true' – Deeney addresses swathes of Watford ...


The Premier League outfit parted ways with the 56-year-old on Sunday, with Hayden Mullins set to take charge against Manchester City this week

Watford captain Troy Deeney has denied rumours that he will be involved in selecting the Hornets' team for Tuesday's encounter with Manchester City following Nigel Pearson's sacking, with the 32-year-old rubbishing reports of a fight in the changing rooms during half-time in their defeat to West Ham on Friday.

The Premier League outfit relieved coach Pearson of his duties on Sunday, with Hayden Mullins handed the reins for the club's final two games of the season as they bid to avoid relegation, starting with the match against City.

Rumours emerged that Pearson was involved in a fracas with players as his side slumped to a 3-1 loss against the Hammers last week, but speaking ahead of his side's clash with City, Deeney has poured cold water over any such notions, as well as shutting down discussions that he may help pick the starting XI to face Pep Guardiola.
