Saka Yet To Decide On International Future

Saka Yet To Decide On  International Future

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka says he is weighing up his international options but will not rush his decision.

Saka is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England.

Saka, born to Nigerian parents, has so far represented England at youth level.

The Arsenal youth academy graduate said neither England nor Nigeria had so far approached him about his senior international future.

“I am always thinking about it but I haven’t made a decision yet,” Saka told BBC Sport.

“No-one has been in touch but when I make a decision you will find out,” said Saka.

The talented winger is having a breakthrough season with Arsenal.

He made his Premier League debut at the age of 17 – making history in the process when he became the first footballer born in 2001 to play in the Premier League.

The young Arsenal star paid tribute to former Gunners coach Unai Emery for giving him his chance.

“I have a lot of thanks to give him because he gave me so much confidence, he gave me my debut and he kept pushing me. I am grateful to him always.

“It’s just something I have always dreamed of, coming up from the academy to the first team.”

Now Saka says he is focused on the future with Arsenal’s newly appointed manager, Mikel Arteta.

“I have heard positive things about him and I am looking forward to working with him.”

    You are not even supposed to for a minute think about England. You are not good enough to break into Nigeria team not alone England Nationa team. You are good enough for our bench but not good enough for their provisional squad

    Saka can play as a left winger, a left wing back, and even as a left full back. If it is true that we have not approached him, then we will have ourselves to blame, because this guy is definitely quality. If it was up to me, Bukayo Saka and Chidera Ejuke would be invited for our next matches. Ejuke the Heerenven winger has been lighting up the eredivisie in recent weeks. So much so that I now entertain fears that the Dutch might make him an offer. In my opinion, he is better than Memphis Depay, their golden boy. The only thing Memphis has over him is experience. If we snooze, we will lose big time. LET’S GET THESE GUYS ASAP, WHILE THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE.

    Thanks Pompei, exactly my fear about Ejike, I ve been shouting is name in the this forum over a year, igbekeme and Ejike would  be very good additions to super Eagles especially Ejike. We need our best legs to prosecute all our matches. Rohr pls cap Ejike ASAP before we loose that boy to either holland or Sweden.

      You and this your igbekeme, is he better than Indidi, aribo, Etebo,or Azeez? Because we can only think of him to replace one of these names. As for Ejuke, I agree on that
