Beppe Sannino believes Nyron Nosworthy is an “extraordinary guy” and says the defender’s court appearance earlier this week won’t affect his chances of securing a place in the Watford first team.

Nosworthy admitted last week to injuring a cyclist in a road rage attack in 2013. On Monday he was sentenced to 42 days imprisonment, suspended for two years. Nosworthy was also ordered to pay £3,300 compensation to the cyclist.

The 33-year-old hasn’t played for the Hornets since the start of January but Sannino says that is only a tactical decision.

He explained: “I can tell you I am very happy with Nyron and he is an extraordinary guy. What happens in his private life is personal and I can’t comment.

“What I can tell you is Nyron, at the training ground, is a professional and a very good guy.

“We have other players in his role though and at the moment I am picking them for this role. But that is just a technical decision.”

It was revealed during Nosworthy’s sentencing that a loan move to the north of the country was a possibility.

When asked if the centre-back was likely to leave on loan, Sannino replied: “I am only the head coach. I train the players and speak to them on the pitch. The transfer or loan market is when I speak to the technical director.

“At this moment Nyron is a Watford player and if I need him I could pick him.”

Nos is an absolute rock in defence and it would be really stupid to send him out on loan or sell him, as I suspect will happen at the end of this season. There needs to be a balance between technically gifted players of which so many have flopped and players who are more suited to the English game. It is a lesson that I fear still has not been completely taken on board by the management. It's a classic case of horses for courses. Got the message Nani?

Nani got it hopelessly wrong in the Summer, I mean three of his signings are no longer at the Club. We've had Ranegie for over a month and he hasn't kicked a ball yet, what's that all about? We need players that can hit the ground running, not half fit crocks. If he identified Tozser personally then fair play but I doubt it.

Mickey Quinn, not so thin says...

At 33, there's no point for Nos or WFC for him to be inactive. If he's not getting in the team a loan makes sense for all. If he was 25 maybe a different matter, but we and he have to accept his WFC career is probably coming to a close as with Taylor (who's barely played since) last year.

Whilst I agree that some of his signings haven't made the grade we were expecting, you have to also remind yourself that there is isn't a formula to work from here, at best its a try and see scenario.
Fabbrini and Acuna were replacements for the "Championship player of the Season" last year. Now thats certainly not going to be an easy challenge given our budgets to work from.
As for Iriney, well to be honest, in my opinion he didn't really do too much wrong. He had some good games and others were he was average, a bit slow on the ball, but have to give him that he needed to adjust. I think in all 3 cases they wanted to move away from England (given our recent weather, who could blame them?) and our game style as it didn't fit. You could say that this is Nani fault for hiring in the first place, but we have seen success in all those that have come in and performed like Fessi, Cassetti, Ekstrand, Pudil, Batty etc etc..
