Watford manager Slaven Bilic has praised Samuel Kalu after the winger made a big impact in the side’s 1-0 win against Wigan Athletic last weekend.
Kalu replaced Ken Sema in the 68th minute of the encounter.
The Nigeria international has enjoyed a positive run since Bilic took charge at the Vicarage Road.
“He’s a player that has got more than something,” Bilic was quoted by the Watford Observer.
“He wasn’t fit when we arrived, and he still isn’t fully fit, but he’s got something special: a change of pace, a change of direction, good on the ball. His first touch and movement are good, he strikes a ball well.
“He’s a very useful player and we are expecting a lot from him.”
The 25-year-old has made four league appearances for the Hornets this season.
