Watford striker Isaac Success is excited to be back in training, having been sidelined with a hamstring injury for six months.
Success sustained the injury during training back in June 2020, but the attacker trained for the first time on Thursday.
In a statement posted on his Instagram handle, The 24-year-old said he’s delighted to back in training.
“Feels good to be back training with the team,” Success said in a post on Instagram.
Success has managed seven goals in 49 league appearances for Watford since he joined the club due to injury problems and loss of form.
The forward recently expressed disappointment in his inconsistent showings for the Hornets and promised to make a more meaningful contribution on his return from injury.
“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 said.
“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.
“Sometimes I feel disappointed with myself as I’ve got the qualities and everything a forward player will need.
“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.”
Watford are third on the Championship table after gathering 34 points from 19 games and will hope to secure all three points against Blackburn Rovers to boost their return to the Premier League.
Success has not featured for the Hornets this season due to the injury, he last played a competitive match on 1 February 2020, in 2-3 Premier League home defeat to Everton.
