Britos to leave Watford to return home

13th March 2019, 15:51 by Jack Ogalbe

Miguel Britos has confirmed he will leave Watford in the summer as he wants to return to his homeland of Uruguay.

The 33-year-old is out of contract in June and clearly pines for South America, having spent the last 11 years in Europe playing in Italy for both Bologna and Napoli before signing for the Hornets in 2015.

Britos says he has made his mind up to head home as he no longer wants to miss out on life off the pitch.

He told journalist Gianluca Di Marzo: "I have now decided. At the end of the season I finish the contract with Watford and return to Uruguay. Definitely.

"We'll see if in Maldonado, my city, or in one of the capital's teams. I will decide calmly, but in the meantime I know the time has come.

"I have been in Europe for 11 years: I miss my friends, my family barbecues. At home we are very united and I suffer not being able to live these moments any longer when I want.

"I think of my parents, of birthdays I don't celebrate with them. At least when I played in Italy there was a Christmas break. I went back down and recharged myself.

"But here we always play, I can't even go back to parties."
