Javi Gracia is not thinking about his future at Watford, despite the club’s current form.

The Hornets are without a win in six games, since they beat relegation candidates West Bromwich Albion on March 3.

But the boss insists he is not worrying about his future and is only ever focussed on the next match.

He said: “I don’t spend my time thinking about if I will be here next season or not, because I’m a professional and I know I have to do my best with or without a contract, to try to get more points in the next few games. So I spend my time thinking about that, not about other things.

“I prefer only to speak about the next game. People talk about the end of the season and how many points we will get in the next few games.

“Of course I want more points, of course I want us to do well, but I can only focus on the next match.”

The gaffer also spoke about the current issue of safe standing, suggesting that he would be in favour of a safe standing section, as long as the fans are comfortable.

He said: “I prefer the atmosphere when you can feel the fans. But I also prefer they feel as comfortable as we can make them.

“I am very grateful with our fans. In Vicarage Road and in the other stadiums, we can feel their support and I always want to win the next game and offer them the three points because they deserve it.”
