Former Arsenal player, Charlie Nicholas, has praised England player of Nigeria descent, Bukayo Saka, following his impressive performance in the new position for the Gunners, as he labelled him a classy left back.
Speaking just before Wednesday clash between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in London, the Gunners legend while praising the entire team for the never-say-die attitude, couldn’t hide his affection for the 18-year-old who has slotted in well at the left back position since injuries to Sead Kolašinac and Kieran Tierney.
“I cannot give up on them, but Arsenal can’t buy a win at the moment. Although it does seem more promising,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“There is more fight in there, no confidence, but there is a shape and a tendency to go and try to squeeze the ball.
“Mesut Ozil is playing better, Aubameyang is still scoring and Bukayo Saka has been class at left-back despite being an attacker.”
Since making his debut against Vorskla in the Europa League, Saka has appeared in 21 matches for Arsenal’s first team, scoring two goals in this season’s Europa League.
