BUKAYO SAKA COMPARED TO ARJEN ROBBEN BY FORMER FOOTBALLER

Glen Johnson has compared Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka to Arjen Robben. Arjen Robben was a legend for Bayern Munich. He was also a legend for the Dutch team. Hence, Glen says that the Gunners winger deserves to be in the category of the best winger. He has also said that Saka has the potential to be the best winger in the world.

Glen Johnson said,

Saka reminds me of Arjen Robben, seriously left footed but that’s not bad because his left foot is that good. ‘Saka is his own player too, he works hard, he’s quick and a serious goal threat, I like him a lot.

Hence, the winger will be under little pressure to perform for England. However, he has started well for the World Cup. The Arsenal winger scored a brace for England in their 6-2 win against Iran.

ARSENAL WILL HAVE TO KEEP HIM FIT THROUGHOUT THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON

Arsenal will have to make sure to manage his workload in the second half of the season. This is because the World Cup in Qatar is going to drain out this player. Hence, the clubs will have to manage the schedules of their players smartly. Therefore, in their current position, the Gunners will hope that Saka continues to put in brilliant performances for them.

Arsenal will also hope they can agree on the contract extension for the England winger. The winger has made it clear that his agent is in positive discussions for a contract extension. This is many top European clubs are going to influence his commitment after the World Cup. Hence, the Gunners need to finish in the Champions League to fully secure his contract extension.

Arsenal will hope that Saka has a similar career as Arjen Robben had at Bayern Munich. They will also hope Saka can help them win trophies this season. This is because they are refusing to lose games easily and scoring goals for fun under the management of Mikel Arteta.
