The Serbian manager said: "First of all, I am very happy for him. He deserved it [receiving the Young Player of the Season award].

"He worked hard, he loves football, he loves to train, he is very passionate about the game.

"He is almost picky in his performances. If he doesn't have a perfect performance, he can get disappointed.

"But, that is because he is young. He'll learn how to deal with adversities. That's where he has to get better.

"He has to also acknowledge and appreciate himself more because he demands so much from himself that sometimes he doesn't understand that goes against him and consequently against the team.

"Again, when he works for the team his individual qualities have been highlighted much more.

"He can enjoy the game more and can improve in his execution, I think he can score more goals and have more courage without the ball.

"All these things he is aware of. We've measured his progress together. Huge credit to him, he has done great."
