Ian Wright has shared his full praise for Arsenal star Bukayo Saka, claiming that he is a generational talent.
Despite his young age, the 19-year-old has already established himself as one of the key players in Mikel Arteta’s squad, while he also sparkled last night, scoring his first goal for England national team.
“The experience that this will give him, because he’ll be involved in Qatar. Once we win this one, then we’ll go and win the World Cup with some serious players,” Wright said on the Wrighty’s House Podcast, when speaking about the youngster’s inclusion in the England squad for the Euros.
“Arsenal fans are saying that he needs a break, no, he needs this. With where he’s going and what his ability has shown us up to this point, he’s been our best player, he needs this kind of tournament to play against these players and be amongst these players, because I think this guy is going somewhere. I remember I got stick for calling him a generational talent, people said he’s not a generational talent, Mbappe is, R9 is, for Arsenal and for us, he’s a generational talent.”
