Senegal manager Aliou Cisse has backed Ismaila Sarr to succeed at Watford, despite having a difficult start to life in England.

French news website 20 minutes report that the Hornets winger told his national boss he was not pleased with the way things were going for him in the Premier League, after struggling to consistently break into the starting lineup.

However, the Senegal boss thinks Sarr has it in him to adapt his game to the league's physicality.

Cisse said: "His situation does not please him, he told me when we spoke. But I think that little by little, he will adapt to this football where there is a lot of impact."

Following his club record move from Rennes in the summer, Sarr has made just seven appearances in all competitions, five of which were as a substitute.

He has not featured for the Hornets since he came off the bench against Sheffield United last month, with an injury preventing him from playing in the last three matches.
