Nigeria international and Watford FC striker Isaac Success has been urged to continue working hard by his club teammate Stefano Okaka.

Success, who joined Watford from Spanish side Granada at the beginning of the current season, has found it difficult to establish himself at the English Premier League (EPL) side thus far.

His teammate Okaka believes that the 21-year-old centre forward is a talented young player, who has the ability to take his game to another level if he continues working hard.

"Success is a talented player," Okaka told Hertfordshire Mercury.

"He's young, and not playing every day - coming into this type of game is not easy.

"He needs to work, but he can carry on at this level and can go up to a very high level too."

Success has made 17 appearances in the league for the Hornets this seasons - netting once against AFC Bournemouth last December.

Okaka, a 27-year-old former AS Roma and Sampdoria centre forward, born in Castiglione del Lago, Umbria, Italy to Nigerian parents.

His parents later obtained Italian citizenship and Okaka is now an Italy international - having made his debut against Albania in 2014.
