Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has hailed youngster Bukayo Saka as a game-changer for his side.
Saka played an instrumental role last night as Arsenal battled to a thrilling 3-2 win over Benfica in the UEFA Europa League. The win saw them reach the Round of 16 where they’ll be reunited with Olympiacos.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang popped up with two goals but in the midst of that, Saka was the one who produced both assists that allowed Auba to flourish.
The next superstar
Saka, 19, has been one of Arsenal’s key men so far this season, producing performances lightyears ahead of his age.
His form has even seen him enter into conversations surrounding the Euros.
But before all that he needs to focus on getting Arsenal into the top six, with the aforementioned Fabregas believing that he is going to be key for them moving forward.
Saka is such a good player. Such a maturity and intelligence for his age. Game changer.— Cesc Fàbregas Soler (@cesc4official) February 25, 2021
“Saka is such a good player. Such a maturity and intelligence for his age. Game changer.” He gushed on Twitter.
Fabregas knows a thing or two about honing your craft in North London, as we all know. So when someone of his reputation notes how polished Saka looks, it’s hard to not sit up and take notice.
