Am not surprised at Saka’s development – Stephy Mavididi


The Player who is on loan at Sporting Dijon from Juventus knows the British born Nigerian too well during his time at Arsenal’s academy.

“I remember when I was at Hale End, I must have been about 13 or 14 and I used to watch Bukayo [Saka] with the Under-8s,” Mavididi told Goal during an exclusive interview”.

“He used to just get the ball and run through the whole team and score. It was the same with Reiss [Nelson]”.

“Now they are really taking their chance and I‘m so happy for them. Arsenal has always been about producing good young talent and that’s what is happening there now”.

“For the young players it’s just about taking your opportunity once you get it and I think the young players who are playing now are doing that”.

“It’s good to see my friends doing so well”.
