Ahead of the Premier League opener against Southampton, Watford have officially announced squad numbers for the season and have handed new signing Isaac Success the number 10 Jersey while Odion Ighalo retained his 24 shirt.
Success had worn the number 12 jersey in training on a number of occasions rising speculations that he will wear that for the new season but surprisingly no player was assigned that shirt for the new campaign.
The Nigeria Under-20 international joined Watford for a club record £12.5m after winning Granada’s player of the season in his final year in Spain and has immediately gained the trust of the Hornets new boss Walter Mazzarri who is set to hand him a premier league debut on Saturday.
However, Odion Ighalo who was Watford’s topscorer last season with 17 goals in all competitions retained his number 24 Jersey for the club.
Ighalo and Success are expected to play some part in the league opener against Southampton at the Saint Mary’s tomorrow.
