Watford boss Pearson says Mariappa in good shape

Watford boss Nigel Pearson says Adrian Mariappa is in good shape.

Pearson says Mariappa "looks exceptionally well and feels very well himself" following his positive test for Covid-19.

He told Sky Sports News: "When I saw him for the test last week, I was sitting in the car park chatting to players as he came past so I had a chance to touch base with most of them.

"He looks exceptionally well and feels very well himself so I think it's an example of how this virus can affect people in different ways.

"He's following the advice and recommendations and isolating for a week. His family are all okay as well. I have no doubts in his case he'll be fine when he comes back in."
