“No fluke,” Ferdinand praises Saka after another superb performance

Bukayo Saka’s remarkable performance in Arsenal’s season opener against Nottingham Forest, including his stunning goal, has garnered praise from former Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand.

Saka has consistently built on his reputation at the Emirates Stadium ever since his breakthrough into the Arsenal first team. He played a pivotal role as a standout player in the team’s strong campaign that saw them contend for the league title last season.

Ferdinand, having observed Saka’s impressive goal and all-around display in the match, expressed his admiration for the young player’s abilities.

He said, as quoted by Euro Sport:

“This kid is the real deal.

“He’s telling people that last season was no fluke, that I’m here to stay, and I’m going to be putting my name up alongside the greatest of this football club.

“This kid is the truth.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saka has been one of the best players in Europe in the last year and we can back him to keep improving.

The Englishman will continue to prove that he has what it takes to lead us back to the top of the Premier League table and we hope that happens this season.

  1. Bukayo is the real deal, i’m sure reiss and emile will follow suit if they can be injury free.nketiah will be prolific all he need do is work on his positioning and bending a shot around a goal keeper from an angular spot.HALE END TO THE WORLD,COYG!!!

  2. Herd the kid score a peach of a goal on Saturday, herd he didn’t meant it, surely he has.

    The truth is Arsenal star boy just keeps getting better, after a relatively slow start to the last campaign somewhere along he came alive registering double figures in both goals and assists, something which is only achieved by complete attackers who are up there with the best in the world.

    Not only has Saka scored a plethora of goals in the last campaign ,but virtually all his goals were equalizing goals or that have put Arsenal ahead in the match, needlessly to say his goal was the deciding factor again starting off where he had left last season.
