The former Celtic and Republic of Ireland international striker believes that Burke needs to improve on his finishing.
Cascarino said about Burke on the Weekend Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT (7:39am, June 9, 2019): “He has got to work on his finishing. He has got to get totally back into being more of a predator-type goalscorer. With his pace, he reminds me a little bit of Shane Long where Shane does not get enough goals for the quality that he has got.”
Football.Scotland quotes Fletcher as saying about Burke: "He just needs to keep working on his game, listening to people, simplifying his game at times.
"When you've got pace, use it. Don't try to dribble and take five players on, pass it and run and keep asking questions of defenders.
"There is a talent in there and he is one of those players I think can click overnight and all of a sudden you are talking about one of the best.
"He needs to simplify his game and realise what he's good at. He's powerful, he's quick. Don't complicate it."
Burke is back at West Brom in the Championship in England after a loan spell at Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
The 22-year-old winger joined the Hoops on loan from the Baggies in the January transfer window until the end of the season.
The youngster was deployed as a striker on occasions at Celtic, and, according to Whoscored, he scored four goals in 14 Scottish Premiership appearances for the Glasgow giants.
