New Watford player Mauro Zarate is confident he will find success at his new club.

The forward, who joined the Hornets in January, had a spell in the Premier League while on loan at Birmingham City in 2008, before coming back when he joined West Ham United in 2014.

However, after some inconsistency he was loaned out to Queens Park Rangers in 2015 and after things didn’t improve he left England having made just 29 appearances for the Hammers in all competitions, scoring seven goals and providing three assists.

The 29-year-old moved to Fiorentina for his second spell in Serie A in January 2016.

Zarate is now back in the English top-flight and believes manager Walter Mazzarri will be able to get the best out of him.

“I think I did quite well with West Ham but here I will do even more. I will give everything I can,” Zarate told The Hertfordshire Mercury.

“I had a chance to come to Watford and I’m very pleased as, for me, the Premier League is the best league in the world.

“Even the Italian gaffer I know him well, I want to play with Watford and with him in the Premier League. And the club has been very good with me as well.

“The club and everyone trust in me here so I’m happy with the way I do it now.

“Regarding the past, I’m not more mature now, I just have the trust for the club and the gaffer.”

Zarate has represented his native Argentina at under 20 level, but after he wasnt named in their senior side in 2014 he opted to play for Chile who he is eligible for through his father.

The forward made his debut for his new club in their 2-1 win over Burnley in the league over the weekend.
