Saka: I am just happy to be playing for Arsenal

by Koolkola

Bukayo Saka was the man of the match against Southampton after a performance that produced a goal and an assist.

The teenager has been in such fine form and the stats back him up, having scored as much as other teenagers in the league combined this season.

He faced the press after the match and expressed how happy he is perform this well for the club of his dreams.

On getting the win after losing on Saturday…

It was much better. Saturday was disappointing for us to be knocked out of the FA Cup. We’re the holders of that and we took it hard. We came out here, we knew their weaknesses and I felt we exploited it well and got the victory that we deserved.

On his goal…

I spoke to Laca before the game about the opportunity, as soon as he gets the ball, I’m going to run behind. He listened and we got the goal, so I’m happy about that.

On Cedric’s pass in the build-up to Laca’s goal…

It was amazing. He just hit the space. I don’t even think he looked at me. I’m really happy with everyone, not just Cedric and Laca, we’re so happy to get the three points here.

On having as many goals (5) as all the Premier League’s other teenagers combined…

I’m just happy to be playing for Arsenal. It’s a dream, I have the passion when I get on the pitch. The boss makes everything clear for me and at the same time gives me the freedom to go and do what I want to do in the final third. I’m really happy with that stat. I just want to keep improving on that every game.

On Arsenal climbing to 8th…

Game after game we take it. I know everybody always says that but we have to do that. This year the Premier League is changing so rapidly, a couple of months ago we were in the bottom half, now we’re in the top half. It can change so quickly. We have to focus on every game and win each on.
