Watford Boss Munoz: Etebo’s Injury Absence A Big Blow


Watford manager Xisco Munoz says losing Oghenekaro Etebo is a big blow for the club, reports Completesports.com.

Etebo is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after sustaining an injury in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.


The midfielder has been ruled out for four to five months and is also set to miss the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
