According to Stefano Okaka, his time at Watford was very good, but his priority was to return to the Italian Lega Serie A side.

Watford’s striker Stefano Okaka has been with the English Premier League team since 2016.

But he was loaned to Udinese in the Italian Lega Serie A.

“I was under contract in June and therefore had to go back to Watford,” said the Italy international according to Football Italia.

“From the moment I arrived in Udine, it was love at first sight, as I was welcomed with open arms and it felt like home.”

“In June, I met director Pierpaolo Marino and decided I had to return here because at this stage of my career, I need someone like him helping me achieve the dreams I never let go of,” he added.

“I received many offers over the last few months, but I needed to feel happy. My priority was to return here and I just had to wait.”

He commented: “I think the team is stronger than last season. It was difficult in January because we lacked experience, but Udinese has done well to bolster that area of the squad and learn from those mistakes.”

“I am in good shape physically and competition for places fires me up. The objective is to score as many goals as possible, provide assists, help Udinese get back to where they belong.”

“Of course I am thinking about it, but right now I have to be focused on Udinese, then everything else is a consequence of that,” he concluded.
