Initially, he played as a left-back but later transitioned to a winger and became a vital part of Arsenal’s starting lineup. He has also represented the England national team internationally since 2020 and he was England’s top scorer in the World Cup qualifying 2022, and even scored a hat-trick in a recent qualifier for Euro 2024.

Beyond football, he is a vocal advocate against racism and discrimination, using his platform to promote positive change. The winger recently signed a long-term contract with Arsenal, signifying his commitment to the club.

Saka’s injury concerns

Saka has missed some matches due minor muscle concerns. He  missed the last two England friendlies before Gareth Southgate’s squad announcement for Euro 2024, the matches were played in late March.

The first match was between England and Brazil while the other was between England and Belgium. As most sources indicate, he has been dealing with fatigue and minor muscle issues and the England team alongside Arsenal decided  it was best for him to withdraw from the friendlies as a precaution to recover fully.

Fortunately, the issue was not serious and he recovered quickly, giving him room to rejoin Arsenal for their Premier League match against Manchester City on 31st March 2024.

In the match between Arsenal and Manchester City, he started but was subbed off in the 78th minute with what was reported as fatigue and a minor muscle issue. Despite the concerns, he was named in the starting lineup for the crucial Premier League clash.

The fact that he was subbed off suggests that the fatigue or muscle issue might have impacted his performance or limited his effectiveness later in the game. His manager confirmed that the winger was feeling the fatigue and hadn’t trained much before the match.
