Bukayo Saka: It was fantastic from start to finish

by Koolkola

Bukayo Saka put up an amazing performance as as he won a penalty and scored a beautiful goal to help Arsenal to a 4-0 win against Slavia Prague as we advanced to the semifinals of the Europa League.

Bukayo Saka spoke on the performance and the team’s prospect

On the performance…

It was fantastic from start to finish. I have to say thank you to God, I’m in a semi-final now. I’m going to have the opportunity to play a semi-final with Arsenal. We did it for all the fans. They deserve it for all the support they give us. We’re really happy to progress and happy with the performance also.

Yeah, we showed real character. Obviously, we got the first one and then it was disallowed and took quite a while. It was only a fraction offside for Emile which was disappointing for him because he deserved a goal. We got the first one again with Nico and the second with Laca and I got one myself. We pretty much killed the game in the first half.

On what has changed in a week…

I felt like in the first leg we played really well we just weren’t clinical. We missed a few chances, if we’d taken our chances, it would have been a similar game. It’s a credit to the manager and all the coaching staff, the way we set up, the way we pressed, they couldn’t get out. The control we had over the game, the movements, the rotation, they couldn’t stop us. We did really well in that department.

On overcoming criticism…

I think it shows everyone how exciting we can be and what we can do. I think we’re such a great team and when we play like this it’s so amazing to be involved and I’m sure it’s amazing for our fans to watch. We just need to not make mistakes, silly mistakes and stuff. We have a great chance of going to the final and winning this competition. it’s really up to us, we have the quality, we just have to show the performances and the game management like we did tonight.

On facing Unai Emery in the semi-finals…

Yeah, we look forward to the next opponent.
