first_imgWatford boss Oscar Garcia is expected to leave hospital on Friday but is unlikely to be at the Championship game against Bournemouth at Vicarage Road on Saturday.Garcia was admitted to hospital last Sunday with what the club described as ‘minor chest pains’.The Spanish coach was forced to miss the 1-0 win over Blackpool on Tuesday night and has been recovering well in hospital all week.The 41-year-old is now expected to return home and assistant coach Ruben Martinez hopes he will be back with the team in the next few days.Martinez said: “He is much better. I was with him on Thursday and he was very well. He will be with us in a few days. But not yet.“We spoke about his problem and also the players but we didn’t want to disturb him too much with tactics because he trusts me and Javier and he needs his rest.“We hope Oscar will come back with a good mentality and in good spirits to achieve the targets of the club and ourselves.“We have a club target and we hope to wait for Oscar because we know the Championship is long and hard.“We know he is well and all our focus is on the football because we are here to work for the club. Now it is not a big problem because he is well. Our target, our job is to put all the focus on the matches and on training.“Maybe the first day for the players to come here to the training ground and know that Oscar had a problem [was not ideal]. But I think the reaction of the players was very good and I hope they keep this reaction.” 1 Oscar Garcia last_img read more
