Capoue On Sarr: “He’s A Guy Without Fear”

By Kevin Affleck

Étienne Capoue is excited by Ismaïla Sarr's potential after watching him train for the first time and revealed he has already taken the club-record signing under his wing.

Sarr was integrated into the main group for the first time this morning after he spent last week testing and executing a well thought-out individual programme while the rest of the squad were preparing for, and then recovering from, the game against Everton. 

But the 21-year-old Senegalese forward was in the thick of things at London Colney today in a very lively session and Capoue liked what he saw.

"He's a guy without fear," said Capoue. "He's always trying to go forward and these are things we absolutely need. He's the type of guy that can make a difference."

By his own admission, Capoue is a not an avid watcher of football but even Sarr had grabbed his attention after his exploits for Metz and then Rennes.

"Of course I have seen him, yes," said the former Toulouse man. "All the French boys know him for two years and we know he is a very young talent. We are very glad he signed for Watford. He feels very happy to start the season with us and he's a very happy guy who now just wants to show what he can do on the pitch."

Capoue made the same short journey from France to London six years ago so he knows what Sarr needs to help him acclimatise. At 31, Capoue is now a senior member of the squad and it was noticeable how he buddied up with Sarr today.

"He's shy as he doesn't speak English but when he is with the French players he is a normal guy," said Capoue. "He speaks a lot with us and I try to help him as much as I can – not only him, but every new player.

"We have to help put them in the best condition to give 100 per cent for us and make sure they feel very good in this club. I try to take care of him because he is young and is in another country."
