“Baller”, “Next Ballon d’Or Winner” – Some Fans Drool Over Exciting Arsenal Star

By on December 14, 2018

Some Arsenal fans have been drooling over Buyaka Saka after the teenager put in a hugely impressive display on his full debut against Qarabag on Thursday night. 

With qualification to the Europa League knockout stages as group winners already in the bag, Unai Emery took the opportunity to rest his big guns ahead of Sunday’s trip to Southampton and give some of his youngsters a chance.

Saka was handed his full debut at the Emirates last night after making an impression off the bench against Vorskla two weeks ago and the 17-year-old certainly took his opportunity with both hands.

The tricky winger was a constant threat to the Qarabag defence and caught the eye with his directness, pace and confidence on the ball. Saka could have had an assist after Eddie Nketiah headed home his fine cross but the goal was ruled out for offside while the youngster saw a golden chance to get on the score-sheet saved in injury time.

It would have capped an excellent all-round performance and some Arsenal fans have taken to social media to hail Saka as a future star. Some supporters labelled him a ‘baller’, others feel he’s already better than Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan while one fan suggested he is the ‘next Ballon d’Or winner’.

That may be pushing it slightly but Saka is certainly a huge talent and hopefully we see him given more opportunities in the first team over the coming season.
