Heurelho Gomes wants Watford to focus on the positives from the recently-finished season and grow together as a team.

The Brazilian goalkeeper played in every round of the FA Cup, as the Hornets made it to the final, while also recording record points, wins and goals tallies in the Premier League and wants the players and fans to look at how far they have come.

“We will go again,” he told the club website.

“Maybe it will be even harder to get to the final next time, but it is possible. We just need to keep going as a club, to keep growing as a club.

“It shows where this club is going. A few years ago, we were in the Championship and nobody expected us to come here. We are still growing. Of course, the result is hard to take but we faced one of the best sides in the world.

“It has been an amazing journey. No one will forget the comeback against Wolves."

Watford were well beaten by Manchester City in the FA Cup final, but Gomes said he is proud of the club's achievements, regardless of that result.

The 38-year-old said the fans should expect more of the same in the future and possibly even more.

He said: “What you can expect from this club is that we will keep going. We are fighters. We will get better. This season has been better than all the others so what I expect is us to carry on growing.

“It was a proud day. Everyone wanted to be in our position but we did it. Of course, at the end the result wasn’t the one that we wanted.

“But I am so proud. I am so proud of what we have done this season.

“And I am so proud of our support. They were amazing until the end, until the final minutes, singing all the way through. That shows we are together.”
