In-form Watford star has the most amazing back story!

Watford striker Troy Deeney has captained the Hornets to promotion, as well as provided a wonderful spark with teammate Odion Ighalo to make them competitive in the top tier.

The 27-year old is truly a fans favourite in Hertfordshire, having scored 83 league goals in the five years he has been there and effortlessly taken to the Premier League.

As the club captain, it’s been remarkable to see him do the business in the top tier after a relatively slow start and the former Aston Villa trainee already has six goals and five assists to his name.

However, things could have gone very differently for the marksman if his Wikipedia page is anything to go by.

Tales of drunkenness, poor time keeping and a lack of dedication are abound in his career in the lower leagues, during his time with Walsall specifically.

While the stories can now be looked back on with laughter, it makes his Premier League success all the more remarkable.
