Silva On Crazy Market & Gray Capture

Silva On Crazy Market & Gray Capture

Watford manager Marco Silva has been meeting with the media today to hold his pre game press conference ahead of the Premier League opener against Liverpool this weekend and, as ever, there have been a variety of subjects discussed.

We'll no doubt get more later today or tomorrow when the bulk of the press conference comes out, but for now the BBC have him briefly talking about how he feels that Watford are suitably prepared for Liverpool, and he also spoke about the 'crazy transfer market' and our signing of former Burnley striker Andre Gray.

'We are working hard in our preparation and I think we are ready. We start against a very good team, and that is the best way to start. It is the first test, nothing more, we need to play against everybody. We play at home and that is important to get a connection between us and our fans and we need to show something special in our stadium.'

Having paid Burnley a reported £11.5million for Gray but on a deal that could rise as high as £18.5million, Silva knew the fee was hugely inflated but he liked the player and the qualities he can now bring to the Watford team, and unfortunately it's now an inflated transfer market that football lives in.

'He is a good player, I know he is a player who wanted to come to Watford, wants to improve and fight for his position in the team. We analysed the positions we wanted to sign new players, he is different to our other strikers. The market is a bit crazy this season.'
