ALLAN NYOM has admitted that it was very much an easy decision to make to extend his contract with the Hornets.
“I’m so happy to extend my contract,” Nyom said, speaking to watfordfc.com.
“Personally I gave everything I had [last season], I know sometimes it wasn’t enough, but I’m happy because I played in a total of 36 games, with some good games and some not so good.
“When you come into a new league with new teammates and a new language, it can be difficult.
“I needed to adapt, but I think I did well in that and I think this year I can do better. I know the league, I speak better English, everything is better now.”
There was plenty of change over the summer at the club, including experienced Italian Head Coach Walter Mazzarri taking charge.
With a new man in the dugout, there’s new ideas, including what was an unfamiliar role for the Cameroonian, who has occupied one of the three central defensive positions in a 3-5-2 formation at times during pre-season.
“We play in a new shape and we have to adapt. We have worked hard over the last two months on this and I think it’s going to be good,” he said.
“It’s a new position so it’s not easy, but I have to fight to try and do well and help the team to win games.”
The first opportunity to get three points comes this Saturday, when the Golden Boys travel to Southampton to kick-off their 2016/17 Premier League campaign.
“I’m so excited to start the league this week,” Nyom continued.
“Last season we lost 2-0 [at Southampton] and we played bad, but it was last year and that’s finished. It’s a new year and a new game so it will be different.
“It’s going to be hard like last year, every team has good players, so it will be very tough but we are going to fight and we are ready to fight.”
