Watford manager Walter Mazzarri says he had no issue with Jose Holebas and Etienne Capoue arguing after the 1-0 win over Middlesbrough last weekend.
Holebas and Capoue was seen having a vocal confrontation after the final whistle last weekend. Holebas scored the lone goal of the game to earn Watford the victory. Mazzarri said ahead of Saturday’s meeting against Swansea that he has no issue with their argument.
“Even in training they usually play on the same side, so they are always both talking to each other and trying to improve each other,” Mazzarri said.
“They are always telling them what position they should be playing, go further forward, go further left, go further back.
“They are always talking to each other, they are very good friends.
“And I am actually very happy about this, because for me the fact that they talk a lot on the pitch and in training shows that they want to improve their football.”
Mazzarri also revealed that Isaac Success has been unable to train regularly during the week after picking up a muscle injury against Middlesbrough.
“He hasn’t been training regularly because of his muscle problems,” Mazzarri said. “He has been having problems in the upper side of the right leg.
“We need to check on him because he hasn’t trained with the team so far this week. So he’s in doubt for the game, he might not be available.
“I substituted him [against Middlesbrough] because the physio said during the game he was already hurting. So I tried to keep him on as long as possible during the game.
“But after the 90 minutes when we were back in the dressing room I had a look at him and they confirmed that he could not train for the next couple of days because of a muscular problem.
“So now we will see.”
