Watford head coach Xisco Munoz felt his team played with both personality and passion despite losing 2-1 to Swansea City.

The Spaniard's side took the lead early in the match through Tom Cleverley before conceding goals either side of half time to end up on the wrong end of the scoreline. 

However, the new boss said that he felt his team had given their all in the match and that they will continue to improve in the coming weeks.

"When we lose, sometimes we are disappointed," said Munoz. "The team has personality, the team played with passion, the team had a good chance, the team were playing every time in the other penalty box.

"We have good things and we need to continue, this is the most important. We know what is our mistakes, we know what is our job and we need growing up. I can say I'm happy with the guys because they gave their maximum and I'm sure we are growing up, day by day."

Having conceded the second goal, Watford tried to push forward and claim an equaliser, but it was not forthcoming, as Swansea rebuffed their efforts.

Nevertheless, the head coach was pleased with the reaction of his players, both on and off the pitch.

"When we receive the second goal, we took our personality, we took the responsibility of this personality for 90 minutes," he said. "This is the most important way. What we need is to grow up. No one said it was easy, everyone knows in front we have a good team, but we continue.

"I'm sure we are all angry, we want to continue and I like when I come inside of the dressing room and everyone is sad for for the situation. I'm happy because tomorrow we start another week. We'll work very hard, and we'll give the maximum for the next game."
