HEURELHO GOMES has revealed he will be leaving Watford at the end of the month after the club were relegated from the Premier League.

The 39-year-old – who will leave Vicarage Road when his contract expires – was seen sobbing after the Hornets lost 3-2 away at Arsenal on Sunday.

The result means that Watford’s five-season spell in the English top-flight is over – just a year after the club finished in 11th spot and were runners-up in the FA Cup final.

Gomes was initially set to depart the Hertfordshire outfit after their defeat to Manchester City at Wembley last season, but was persuaded to stay for another term.

But after managing just three games for Watford in all competitions this season – and failing to play in the Premier League in the last two years – Gomes has announced his time has come to an end.

In an emotional Instagram post, the Brazilian said: “It’s hurting and will hurts (sic) for a while!

“Not because of myself, maybe I’m the least affected, I knew one day it was going to come to an end for me, but I feel for the fans, I feel for my team-mates and friends.

“I feel for the people at the training ground, I feel for the people at (the) stadium, I feel for everyone involved with Watford Football Club, you did deserve better from us.

“But It’s time to start to pick yourself up and go again, and go back to where you belong, and l’m sure that you gonna do it.

“I will be always supporting you, doesn’t matter where I go or what I’m doing.

Gomes – who has featured in 160 games for Watford since joining from 2014 – helped the club to promotion to the Premier League in his first season.

And Troy Deeney has hinted he may be on his way out after he revealed the loss at the Emirates could be his last appearance.
