Young winger Richarlison has settled into Watford's squad as well off the pitch as on it, according to defender Adrian Mariappa.

The 20-year-old Brazilian, who spoke precious little English when he stepped on the plane from his native Rio de Janeiro to Heathrow - but has already become affectionately regarded within the squad a month into his stay in Hertfordshire.

His reputation can't have been hurt by his start on the pitch - netting twice for the Hornets already in only five Premier League starts.

And Mariappa has been impressed with both his attitude during games and personality outside of Vicarage Road.

He said: "Richarlison has settled in really well. He’s still brushing up on his English, but he’s go a great character about him and he doesn’t seem his age - he plays with a lot of personality.

"He’s fit straight in and he’s had a great start in the league, the boys love him. He puts a great shift in and that’s the most important thing.

"His English isn’t the best at the moment, and I’m not planning to teach him! But he’s working on it and he’s always smiling and he’s got great attitude.

"You never know whether that chance was going to go in, but he’s got great composure there for a lad so young and I’m delighted for him."
