The striker notched a double on his Black Cats debut in the 2-2 against Swansea City, and the Frenchman is confident Fletcher will only improve.
“I feel respect for [Steven],” Saha told the club’s official website.
“I am not surprised at all [with his start]. This is just Steven’s first few games and I think we can expect even more from him.
“That is a good prospect. I don’t think this is the last time we will be talking about him.”
Saha replaced the former Wolves man mid-way through the second half and was part of the incident which was Swansea defender Chico Flores handed a red card when the defender was deemed to catch the former Tottenham man on the side of his head.
“I don’t think he was near the ball and it was a really strange challenge,” Saha added.
“If I had had the chance to keep running I could have had a good chance to score or do something.
“It was definitely a red card.”
