Watford boss Ranieri: Look for me, Joao Pedro is a crack

Watford boss Claudio Ranieri is delighted with the form of Joao Pedro.

The 20-year-old has begun to find his feet under Ranieri and he scored a late equaliser on Saturday to earn Watford a point at Newcastle.

Ranieri, speaking ahead of Tuesday's crunch game with Burnley, has been impressed with the forward and believes he has the potential to be a real star in England.

“Look for me, Joao Pedro is a crack," said Ranieri.

“He is young and he has to improve a lot.

“But he is also one of the best young players in the Premier League for me.

“For me, Joao is a very good player but we have to leave him to improve slowly, slowly, without putting pressure on him.

“He has to improve a lot, he has very good skills, but slowly, slowly please."
