Watford manager Walter Mazzarri has continued his defensive revolution with a big addition from his Serie A stomping grounds.

Coming on loan to the Hertfordshire club is Juan Camilo Zuniga. The 30-year-0ld Napoli defender has 62 caps for Colombia and spent the last half of last season on loan at Bologna.

Mazzarri managed Zuniga for four years at Napoli, the final three of which saw Partenopei as one of the Top Five defenses in Serie A. Last season he claimed that forces above the Napoli manager kept him on the sidelines for the first half of the season.

Watford’s problem in their Premier League return was scoring, but Zuniga is a nice addition to the back line (provided he can avoid breaking superstar backs with his knee).
