'A New Star Is Born', ' A Live Wire': English Press Laud Impressive Saka MOTM Performance Vs Frankfurt
The Man of the Match performance of Nigerian forward Bukayo Saka is sure to reverberate for sometime.
The following are ratings of the youngster by some of the English press.
"Bukayo Saka – 9.5.
"Bukayo Saka really stood out tonight. The 18-year-old was Arsenal's best player in the first half and a constant threat down the left flank.
"He was a real live wire in possession, constantly dribbling at this shaky Frankfurt defence. His performance was capped by that wonderful finish with five minutes left on the clock and the assist for the third."
Football. London also handed a massive rating to the Nigerian forward.
"Bukayo Saka: A live wire who did the Arsenal academy credit from the outset.
"He never shied away from an opportunity to take the ball and with his every touch he seemed to be asking how he could test the defenders.
"In a stadium as hostile as the Commerzbank Arena Saka showed no sign of fear, instead rising to the occasion with a performance that was far better than that of numerous senior team-mates.
"We shall be seeing a lot more of the 18-year-old, who took his goal in exceptional fashion, in the coming months and years. 9," the website that covers London based teams predicted.
Thefootballnetwork.net waxed lyrical of Saka's undoubted talent.
"Saka - 9. One goal, two assists, carried the ball excellently and showed strength. A star is born. Needs to stay with the first team now."
Arsenal will now turn their attention to the Premier League with a game against Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday.
