The career thus far of Jay DeMerit, the American central defender who plays for Watford, is a remarkable story of determination. Many players would have given up after not being picked to play for a Major League Soccer team. Not DeMerit, though, who traveled to Europe in search of a professional soccer contract.
Learn more about DeMerit’s remarkable story in this week’s episode of the EPL Talk Podcast where he discusses what the mood is in the Watford squad, which American players in the Premiership he considers his friends, whether playing in England instead of the MLS hampers his chance of playing for the U.S. national squad, and much more.
Watch DeMerit this Sunday when Watford plays Plymouth in the FA Cup quarter-final. The match will be shown live on Fox Soccer Channel at 2pm ET.
