Jailed footballer says sorry

STREET FIGHTING MAN: Watford striker is prison bound after pleading guilty for affray

WATFORD FOOTBALLER Troy Deeney has apologised before he begins his 10-month prison term for affray.

The 23-year-old striker was sentenced in June, after admitting his guilt in court over physically attacking a student outside a Birmingham nightclub.

Deeney scored 12 goals last season and used to ply his trade for Walsall until he joined the Hornets in 2010 for an initial fee of £250,000. The forward, who began his career in Aston Villa’s youth scheme, is hopeful he will be forgiven and have the chance to make amends in his playing career.

“I made a terrible mistake and I’m now serving my sentence for this”, he said in a statement issued to Sky Sports.

“I have apologised to the victim involved and I would also like to place on record my apology to the fans and players of Watford Football Club for letting them down with my indiscretion.

“If the club decide to retain my services then I will give my all this season to help them achieve the goals set by the new management team.”
