The 25-year-old is impressed with the Senegalese international’s technical ability and praised him for his contribution to the Hornets.
Watford midfielder Will Hughes described Ismail Sarr’s pace and technique as scary and impressive.
The Senegalese international teamed up with the Hornets in the summer of 2019 on French side Rennes for a record £ 30million.
The winger delivered eye-catching performances and in his debut season he scored five league goals although his efforts weren’t enough to save his side from relegation.
His impressive debut has caught the attention of many Premier League clubs, but the Hornets have managed to keep their star forward.
Sarr has scored seven goals and provided nine assists in 27 league games in his quest to help Xisco Munoz’s men return to England’s top flight at the end of the campaign.
His pace and dazzling on-wing displays often caught his markers on the back foot and Hughes praised the forward for those performances.
“He is scary. How he does every game is scary, ”Hughes told the club website.
“Everyone talks about his pace and it’s great, but his technique and his touch at the pace he’s running is scary.
“He doesn’t stop for 90 minutes and it’s the control he has at such a pace that is most impressive. He is also a good boy.
Sarr’s efforts helped Watford reach their current third position on the league table after collecting 57 points in 31 games.
The forward is expected to continue his scintillating performances when Watford takes on the Blackburn Rovers in their next league game on Wednesday.
Sarr has also been a consistent player for Senegal since making his debut against Namibia in 2016 in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The forward has now made 32 appearances for the Teranga Lions and is expected to continue to replicate his club’s performances for the West African side during their next outings in March.
