After Watford’s 1-0 win last Sunday over a struggling Middlesbrough, Holebas and teammate Capoue started bickering on the field. When questioned, Mazzarri insisted his players will only reach their peak by continuing to push themselves and each other.

Etienne Capoue has had previous arguments with his team. He was vocal after his move from Tottenham Hotspur, detailing the relationship with his former club. Now an integral part of the Watford first team, he alongside Holebas must work together to challenge sides in the Premier League.
