Diego Llorente: The team deserved this

Defender on Watford win.

Leeds United defender Diego Llorente spoke to the media following Saturday’s victory over Watford.

The Spain international returned to fitness and scored the winning goal as the Whites ran out one-nil winners.

Llorente was delighted with the victory and felt it had been a long time coming.

“It’s a good feeling,” said Llorente.

“I think the team deserved this win because in other matches, we didn’t have much luck.

“In this match, the team gave everything and we deserved it.

“I try to give good passes from the back to my partners, but also score goals from the back and I was very lucky today and happy to help the team.

“I found the ball near me and I didn’t think, just struck it and thankfully it found the goal.

“In the second half we could’ve scored more goals, but we created the opportunities and overall we are happy with the result and have to keep improving.

“This match was a win and the season is very long, so we have to continue keeping going and prepare for the next match.”
