Wigan Athletic boss Malky Mackay feels that Watford striker Troy Deeney will definitely be playing in the Premier League soon.
Mackay’s side were defeated 2-0 by Watford on Tuesday night; courtesy of a brace from Birmingham born Deeney.
The win propelled the Hornets to the summit of the Sky Bet Championship table, level on points with second placed Middlesbrough.
Speaking after the match, Wigan boss Malky Mackay told Sports Mole:
“Quite rightly because of his hard work, he will end up in the Premier League – one way or another,”
Mackay bought the striker during his time in charge of Watford, and added: “That is why I bought him in the first place.
“He is an absolutely terrific centre-forward and he has blossomed. For me he is by far the best centre-forward in this division. He is an all-rounder.”
The defeat for Wigan saw the Latics remain in the relegation zone in the Championship, in 22nd place in the division.
It is going to take a colossal effort for the club to escape the dreaded drop zone, with six points separating them with 21st placed Rotherham United.
