Watch: Mariappa and Sordell On Sarr's Electric Pace
Adrian Mariappa and Marvin Sordell were in awe of Ismaïla Sarr’s electric pace as they dissected Watford’s 3-0 Carabao Cup victory against Coventry City last night.
The pair spoke to post-match reaction show Added Time about the win.
“Early on in the game their full-back, Brandon [Mason] hit him a couple of times,” said Mariappa. “I think it was a ‘hello, welcome to England’ sort of thing. But he got up, dusted himself down and showed what a player he is.
“He’s got great pace, he used it and he was running people all night. He took his goal really well, had great bits of movement as well. Credit to him because it’s not easy to come in and play against a good Coventry side in your first game. I’m delighted for him.”
Former Watford striker Sordell knows a thing or two about scoring at Vicarage Road and was impressed by the Hornets' new signing.
“It makes his [Mariappa’s] job easy because he knows he can put it in behind,” said Sordell. “And on the break in the Premier League having someone like that on your team is invaluable.”
