Watford defender William Troost Ekong says helping the team gain promotion to the English Premier League is one of the highest points of his career.

The Hornets sealed their promotion back to the topflight a season after relegation with a 1-0 win over Millwall with influential Senegalese striker,  Ismailia Sarr scoring the lone goal from the penalty spot.

Troost-Ekong who joined the side in the summer from Serie A club Udinese says it is a dream come true also applauding his teammates for the effort.

 “It’s amazing. I can’t really put words to it now,” the defensive stalwart told the club’s website.

 “It’s one of the best days in my life and in my career so far. We worked so hard for it and now we’ve done it, so I’m really pleased for all the boys.

 “Credit to everyone from the backroom staff, to the media staff, to the manager, to all the physios, to the owner, to everyone. It’s amazing and it’s been a team effort.”

 “A lot of the time when you have a relegation it’s difficult to pick yourselves up. Everyone at the club did amazing to give us the best chance and now we’re here, so we’re all really happy. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

 “I think we have to enjoy it because you don’t get moments like this very often. At the start of the season everybody said we wanted to do it, but it’s one thing saying it and another thing actually doing it.”
