Watford's Ismaila Sarr Was "Really, Really Disappointed" After Liverpool Win

The 22-year-old scored twice at Vicarage Road on Saturday night as Nigel Pearson's men ended Liverpool's 44-game unbeaten run in England's top flight with a shock victory.

But Sarr, who was the stand out player for Watford, slated his own performance in a post-match interview that showcased his elite mentality.

"I'm really, really disappointed because I really wanted the ball today," he told reporters.

"I had a big chance to get the hat-trick. I'll try for the next game to get the points for my team."

Sarr's performance shouldn't have come as a surprise to the Liverpool squad.

At the start of the season, Sadio Mane warned his teammates about Sarr's potential.

"The first day he signed I sent him a message to say good luck and that I was happy for him," Mane told The Athletic in August.

"He's rapid. I think defenders will struggle.

"Last time I was speaking to Robbo (Andy Robertson) I said: 'Watford have a really good player. I will need to help you more otherwise Ismaila Sarr will kill you, because he is a good dribbler and very, very fast'."

Mane isn't the only player to praise Sarr's talent.

Watford teammate Troy Deeney was nothing but complimentary about the Senegalese international's ability after the full-time whistle on Saturday.

"Ismaila Sarr is an unbelievable player, unbelievable talent." he told BBC.

"He still has a lot to learn, and will continue to learn, but I think it's a full team performance."

Thoughts on Sarr's performance against Liverpool? Could he be the next big thing?
