Arsenal man takes first in the ranking of world’s top youngsters

Bukayo Saka has been recognised for his fine form in the Arsenal first team after he topped his class of 2001 for the best youngsters in the world.

The Englishman recently played his 50th Premier League game for Arsenal and he has also been a regular for the England national team.

He is blazing the trail for young talents around the world who are building a career for themselves in the game.

Football research group CIES Observatory has now ranked youngsters in different age group since the turn of the millennium.

The rankings were arrived at by considering the number of games played by the youngsters and the quality of the opponents that they faced.

Saka topped the class of 2001 ahead of talents like Benoit Badiashile of AS Monaco and Mason Greenwood of Manchester United.

This is another confirmation that Arsenal has a jewel on their hands and the sky is the limit for the young attacker.

Mikel Arteta is confident in him and has been reaping the rewards from trusting him since he became the club’s manager.

Saka will now look to help Arsenal end this campaign in the best possible way and that should see him comfortably make Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros.

    Thank God for Gareth Southgate. Being the Spud lover he is there is no way Saka will play any part of the Euros the summer as the line up will likely be

    Hart

    Trippier
    Dier
    That useless twat Turner who is retired
    Sessegnon

    Winks
    Mullery (look him up if your younger than 40)
    Waddle

    Jimmy Greaves (Ditto Mullery)
    Kane
    Ali

    Who actually cares?

      @Phil.

      Gave up on England long ago – only watching now due to Saka’s involvement.

      “International breaks” are as interesting as watching the grass grow.

      PHIL I CAN TELL YOU ARE A CLOSET SPUDS FAN!!!

      My own guilty secret is that I can recite from memory the Spuds double winning team quicker than our own one of 1971(AD, in our case , not BC)!
      I was in their ground when BENFICA KNOCKED THEM OUT OF THE EUROPEAN CUP BACK IN 1962 AND SHOUTING MY HEAD OFF, WHILE ALL THE GROUND WAS IN STUNNED SILENCE. BEFORE THE DAYS OF HOOLIGANS OF COURSE AND I WAS 12 YEARS OLD.

    Nice one young Saka. Just make sure he’s safe guarded against too much burn out involving too many games. Played. So brilliant so far and mature in stepping up to what can be a top draw player, but let’s not get carried away and keep our feet on the ground remembering that it’s a team outfit so not all the pressure will be on Saka alone.
