Watford defender Mariappa: Sack culture quite interesting

Watford defender Adrian Mariappa insists he's learned to handle the club's sack culture.

Mariappa says he finds it a "challenge".

"I find it quite interesting," the 32-year-old tells Sky Sports. "It's a good challenge when managers come in with their own ideas.

"I think that's how football is now, there's change so often and you have to be able to adapt to new ideas and new philosophies. There's no right or wrong way to play football but everyone has their own ideas. You then have to try and implement them yourself as a player.

"I am always trying to learn from every manager. The gaffer now I love his ideas and the way he sees football. I am just trying to learn from him. He has shown great faith in me and I am just trying to repay that."
