DC United's Najar has more potential than Arsenal's Walcott - Quaranta

Recently-retired DC United star Santino Quaranta believes former teammate Andy Najar has more potential than flying Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

The 18-year old Honduran continues to develop in Major League Soccer after being named the 2010 Rookie of the Year and Quaranta feels he can be as good as England internationals Walcott and Aaron Lennon (Tottenham) with a bit of guidance.

"He's had a lot thrown at him from an early age and he needs mentoring," Quaranta told blackandredunited.com.

"I think where he's going to go with the game will be astonishing. He's an unbelievable kid and I look at guys in England like, [Aaron] Lennon and [Theo] Walcott, and I will go on record and say I think he has more potential than Walcott."

Najar's potential is not going unnoticed in England after he had the opportunity to spend time training with Lennon at Tottenham earlier this month.
