Watford boss Oscar Garcia has been released from hospital and could be back at the club later this week.

The 41-year-old Spaniard left hospital on Sunday, a week after he was admitted suffering from chest pains.

Garcia, who only took over at Vicarage Road three weeks ago, has since missed the Hornets' 1-0 win at Blackpool and Saturday's 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, which should have been his first home match in charge.

Watford would not put a time frame on his return on Saturday, but now say they hope he will be back on the training ground before next weekend's trip to Blackburn.

Watford boss Oscar Garcia is due to be released from hospital on Saturday and hopes to be back at work "very soon".

The Spaniard, 41, was admitted to hospital last Sunday after complaining of chest pains.

Writing in his programme notes ahead of Watford's home game against Bournemouth, he said: "You will be aware that I won't be at the match today, but I am hopeful that I will be returning to work very soon.

"One thing is for sure, I am certainly looking forward to being on a training pitch rather than sat in a hospital."
