Watford defender Adrian Mariappa has revealed he has tested positive for Covid-19.
Following the first round of Premier League testing this week, Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan was also one of those to return a positive test.
Mariappa, though, was among three Hornets staff to test positive, and the 33-year-old says he has no idea how he caught the virus.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Mariappa said:
“Ever since I got my positive result back on Tuesday, I’ve been scratching my head to work out how I might have got coronavirus.
“It was a big surprise because I haven’t really left the house apart from some exercise and the odd walk with the kids.”
The Jamaica international was disappointed the results have ended up revealing his identity.
“I’d have preferred if everything had been kept private.”
