How Twitter reacted as Watford completed the loan of Benfica’s Andre Carrillo

Written by

Watford’s smart summer transfer business under new manager Marco Silva continued on Thursday evening as the Hornets’ official website announced the season-long loan of Benfica winger Andre Carrillo.

The 26-year-old will re-unite with the Portuguese boss after their time spent together at Sporting Lisbon in the past, playing 160 times for them before moving on to fierce rivals Benfica last season.

Carrillo – who has also represented Peru 35 times on the international scene – featured 24 times during last campaign as Benfica completed a resounding Primeira Liga and Taca de Portugal double.

There has been an option inserted into the Peruvian’s contract that, should he impress Silva and Watford’s club owners this year, they have first refusal on a permanent deal once the season ends.

It was the Hornets who took to social media to announce their new arrival…

And some Watford fans were delighted with another attacking addition…

With the concept of South American duo Carrillo and Richarlison a tantalising one…

Benfica fans even got in on the act and applauded Watford’s work…

Even if others remained a little more sceptical about the Peruvian…

But either way, they will no doubt be hoping he can rekindle his previous form under Silva…

What do you think Watford fans? Will he be a good addition? Let us know below.
