Moussa Sissoko has apologised to supporters for Watford's performance in their 3-0 defeat to Norwich City on Friday night.

After a first half low on quality, the Canaries shifted through the gears in the second while the Hornets stood still, allowing their visitors to get the better of them in humiliating fashion.

And while head coach Claudio Ranieri faced questions over his future, having not won a game now since November, captain Sissoko said sorry to supporters on behalf of the playing squad.

“We knew how important it was,” he told the club website. “We lost our discipline after the first goal and started doing our own things.

“We want to say sorry to the fans because they came with good enthusiasm and energy but we didn’t show enough to win the game.”

The defeat puts the Hornets in the bottom three of the Premier League for the first time this season, but the captain insists they can still get out of their current situation.

“We are now in the bottom three so it’s difficult but we will keep working and doing our best," he continued. "We must work, fight and not give up, because it’s not over. We aren’t doing enough and should do more.

“We have to work at the training ground and work on what we need to improve. We need to take points.”
