Watford boss Gianfranco Zola confirms on-loan Udinese defender Neuton has not suffered fracture in foot
Watford defender Neuton is set to return to training earlier than feared after Gianfranco Zola confirmed the defender has not suffered a fractured bone in his foot.
The on-loan Brazilian underwent a scan yesterday after sustaining a toe injury in training on Tuesday that ruled him out of the 1-0 victory over Peterborough United.
Neuton was still on crutches at Vicarage Road today, but when asked how the scan went the Hornets head coach said: “Better than we thought. He hasn’t got a fracture, he’s got a big bruise so he will still need some time but not as long as we thought.”
