Watford boss Gianfranco Zola praises impact of Ikechi Anya after pacey winger makes Championship return
Gianfranco Zola is relieved to have Ikechi Anya back to full fitness and says the Watford winger’s pace can make a big difference to the Hornets' creativity this season.
Anya suffered a calf injury and had not played for the Golden Boys since the start of November before returning to first-team action against Leeds United on Saturday.
The 25-year-old provided a constant threat on the counter-attack at Elland Road and Zola insists Anya’s pace can be a big boost for his team.
“Ikechi is a lively player,” Zola said after the 3-3 draw. “When you have him on the pitch he can transform the action.
“He can turn a chance for your opponents into a chance for you because of his pace.”
