Former Gunner makes toughness claim about Arsenal star

A former Arsenal player has been discussing one of the Gunners’ current players.


The player being discussed by former Arsenal man Kevin Campbell in a recent interview was Bukayo Saka.

Campbell was quick to praise Saka for how he has toughened up despite still only being 21:

“People will want to make contact with you when you’re as dangerous as Saka. He will learn to play quicker, and he is getting there, but there is a learning process to come, he’s only 21 years old. I think Saka has toughened up though, that’s what I will say, he has toughened up for sure,” Campbell said.

Despite his tender years, Saka has now played 179 games for Arsenal across all competitions.

2022/23 saw him score 14 goals and provide 11 assists in 38 league outings for the north Londoners.

Such a return was not enough to secure Arsenal the Premier League title last season, but with one of the youngest, most impressive squads in the division, it is unlikely Arsenal will have to wait too long to lift some form of silverware.
