Cukur: Rovers felt right

19 July 2021

Tiago Cukur believes Rovers is the right club for him to continue his development in the English game.

The Turkish youth international joins the club on a season-long loan from Premier League Watford.

“I’m excited to be here,” said Cukur

“I had a couple of other options but when this club came in, it just felt right.

“It’s a good club. I’ve watched a couple of games and spoken to the manager about how the team want to play.

“The manager played a big part in me coming here. He gave me the right feeling about coming here."

Joining the Hornets in January of this year, the 18-year-old has been impressing in the U23s but feel now is the right time to test himself in the men’s game.

“It’s been a good couple of months with Watford and I’ve been training a bit with the first team but I think it’s the right time to play men’s football,” he added.

“I’m absolutely buzzing to be here and I can't wait to start meeting all the players. I feel like it’s going to be a good season.”
