Watford have a “strong suspicion” that Isaac Success’ injury problems are down to a “witches curse”.
According to AfricanFootball.com “there is now strong suspicion in the camp of Watford” that 21-year-old Success’ his recent injury woes may be a curse place don him by witches.
The Benin-born forward was a club-record £12.5million signing from Spanish La Liga side Granada in the summer, but he has started only one Premier League game – the win at Middlesbrough in October – and has made just seven other sub appearances.
He has been sidelined with a hamstring problems, and is currently missing until the end of the month with the problem, which earlier this season saw him miss seven weeks.
“His people are beginning to think that it is some people who are not happy with his progress who are chasing him with evil witches,” a source told the African website.
“They are suspecting juju against the boy.”
His injury problems saw the club send him to see a specialist in Spain earlier this season.
Last week, Walter Mazzarri said: “Success they say two or three weeks, but we need to understand if they can be back immediately or if they need some minutes before they are ready for the game.”
Earlier in December the Hornets boss admitted that Success only had half an hour “in his legs”.
“He’s recovered now,” said Mazzarri. “He’s available 100 per cent for the team but he has got around 20-3o mins in his legs. He won’t start because then we have to make one change already. If he plays, he comes on from the bench.”
