Many Watford fans have given their response on Twitter to one of the club’s tweets which shows new signing Ismaila Sarr at training on his first day.
The club posted a video of Sarr walking through the training ground, carrying his boots in a plastic bag.
Look who just turned up for his first day

Sarr, 21, joined the club for a reported fee of over £25m, blowing their previous record fee of £18.5m for Andre Gray out of the water.
The Senegalese winger has penned a five-year deal at Vicarage Road after impressing for Rennes, scoring 13 times in 50 games for them last year.
Yesterday was Sarr’s first day training for the Hornets, and the club updated their fans, letting them know how much he impressed the medical staff.
Head of injury prevention and rehabilitation, Alberto Leon, said: “It was the first day with the player and the first approach is a positive one.
“He came in a good condition and we did all the tests to see more deeply how he is.”
“With all this information we have created a profile of the player and we can see if there is an imbalance or a weakness point.
“We are still collating the results but all the staff say he is in a normal shape and this is not a player we are going to have to work a lot on different things. He came with a good baseline, he looks good and we are really happy with the player. He looks a good athlete.”
Watford fans couldn’t help but poke fun at themselves, though, considering the video posted by the club has Sarr looking rather grumpy. Others also laughed about how Sarr was carrying a plastic bag with his boots in, rather than a boot bag.
One fan commented: “Would love to see film of him laughing and joking with the other players and staff. And please can someone give him a boot bag?”.

It’s like we’ve just stopped him from boarding a flight back home and frogmarched him to London Colney!

Who's just turned up? Hmm.
Is the answer 'everyone that was meant to have been playing Brighton on Saturday'?
