Nigeria international Isaac Success has expressed his disappointment with his underwhelming performances for Watford FC.
Much was expected from the 24-year-old striker when he joined the English club from Spanish La Liga side Granada in July 2016.
Success, who has struggled with injuries at the Championship outfit, has netted five goals from 62 competitive appearances for the Hornets.
“It’s been tough. It was painful, but it’s football and it happens. I’m just trying to work my way back to the squad as I’ve missed playing with the team,” Success told Hive Live.
“We need to get back to the Premier League as quickly as possible, so I’m looking forward to getting back and achieving our goals.
“I’m very excited. The last five months have been boring. I’ve done a lot of work and I know it’s going to be an emotional first game back after six months out, but I’m ready for the challenge.”
The quick player ruptured his Achilles in a friendly in June 2020 and his last competitive appearance came in their FA Cup against Newcastle United in January 2019.
Success is keen to make amends when he returns from his long injury layoff.
“Sometimes I feel disappointed with myself as I’ve got the qualities and everything a forward player will need,” he continued.
“I need to do the right things and wait for my chance. I think I’ve got lots to offer the team. It’s been disappointing not getting the chance [over the years] and being injured a couple of times when it was time for me to explode.
“I just need to keep working as there is so much more to come. It’s time for me to deliver for the team and the fans as they have been waiting too long. The wait is now over.”
Success has played two international matches for Nigeria without scoring a single goal.
