When asked in an interview, the Englishman did not think twice before praising the Rubro-Negro holder
It is evident that the cast of Flamengo it is of extreme quality when 4 players are summoned by their national teams to play in the World Cup in Qatar, like Arrascaeta, Varela, Everton Ribeiro and Pedro. Although, not only those who were called this time have moralsnot least because others have proven that they have quality since they arrived in Gávea.
This situation could be confirmed during the interview with Saka, the jewel of England, which has had a great World Cup so far, managing to prove the coach’s commitment, as he has also been shining at Arsenal. The number 7, just 21 years old, has been receiving chances in the professional team since the 2019/20 season, but said he got special help behind the scenes.
In a recent interview with LADBible TV, the striker mentioned David Luiz, from Flamengo, as someone fundamental in the beginning of his career, since both played together in the Reds. If it wasn’t enough to have placed the defender as important in his rise, he still praised his personality, of always seeking to help others:
🇧🇷I had a lot of help from different players, but I would say the biggest impact was David Luiz. He was the one who did the most for me for my career. Going to the first team is not always the easiest experience. But you can say in terms of all the young players at Arsenal that David has done so much for us. He always found a way to do something for us, on and off the field. He’s a really good guy. There are several players that have helped me, but I would probably say David🇧🇷Saka said.
It is worth remembering that the number 23 of Rubro-Negro stayed for about a year and a half at the English club, before deciding to come to Rio de Janeiro🇧🇷 There, he made 73 games, with 4 goals and 1 assist, but apparently he helped a lot off the pitch as well. With Dorival Júnior, he was being treated as an absolute starter, but this should continue even with Vítor Pereira.
