Watford's Boothroyd fires parting shot at Bouazza

Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd today fired a parting shot at Hameur Bouazza by claiming Fulham's new signing was not worth a place in his team.

Bouazza joined the Premier League club this week in a deal which could rise to £4million after making it clear earlier in the summer that he wanted to leave Vicarage Road.

Bouazza, 22, signed a four-year deal at Fulham - but Boothroyd believes the Algeria international forward has made a mistake in leaving the Hornets.

'Hameur wouldn't necessarily have been a starter,' said Boothroyd. 'If everyone had been fit, [Tommy] Smith and [Jobi] McAnuff would have started.

'We had a player who I didn't think was anywhere near ready to move. He should have stayed a little bit longer, to grow and develop.

'But the lure of the Premier League, and the money to be made by all concerned, is a heavy burden sometimes.'
