Watford coach, Nigel Pearson has come out to say that Adrian Mariappa is doing fine despite being diagnosed with coronavirus days ago.
Nigel recently revealed that the player looks exceptionally well and this proves that the virus can affect people in different ways.
According to him, Mariappa is currently following the advice and recommendations and isolating for a week so he should be fine ahead of his return to football.
He added that the reality is that some people will be able to shake the virus off easily while others will be more susceptible.
His words, “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.
“The point about this is there will be people who have the virus and who shake it off easily and some who are more susceptible.
“There are still a lot of unanswered questions. He’s disappointed he’s not in and we’ve got other people who are away because they have to self-isolate because of being in contact with people who have been tested positive, and then we have players who have decided they will continue to train on their own.”
On the June 12 restart, Kabasele said, “I think it is impossible because it would be less than three weeks training after a long period without doing anything, it’s a risk for us,”
“I’m not sure, I don’t have any information but I think we are not going to start June 12.
“The most obvious choice for me is the end of June. Like this you have at least four weeks to train with the team if it’s possible.
“We will see. For the moment it’s a big question mark on this.”
