Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Anderson discussed the starlet and what hopes he has for the youngsters future.

“Dejan has been with the national team recently but has already shown he has great potential,” Anderson told the paper.

“He works hard and is very quick. If this continues, he will stay in the national team for many years.

“What’s his best position? As a coach you always appreciate someone who can play in many positions. It will be very interesting to see his evolution.

“At the moment, however, I believe that with that speed, he is perfect for playing on the wing.”
