Bukayo Saka took inspiration from Arsenal and Manchester City players to create his dream Premier League footballer.
For his outstanding performances with Arsenal during the 2022-23 season, the England international received the PFA Men’s Young Player of the Year award on Tuesday.
Saka faces competition from Premier League top scorer Erling Haaland and midfielder Moises Kaido, who joined Chelsea at the start of the summer from Brighton on a record transfer fee.
Haaland beat City teammates Kevin de Bruyne and John Stones and Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard and Saka to win the PFA Player of the Year award.
After receiving his award at the Lowry Theater in Manchester, Saka was given the opportunity to make the Premier League footballer of his dreams and guaranteed to be in the mix.
The striker has chosen the right foot of Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, but has made it clear which left foot he believes is the best in the English Premier League.
“I’m going to keep my left foot,” he told GOAL before adding some pace to the player of his dreams.
He said, “There are a lot of options…I’m actually going to go with Martinelli.”
As far as strength is concerned, Saka chose another Manchester City player, Kyle Walker. “He’s so strong! Wow!” he shouts.
The Arsenal striker finally had to choose a player for his football IQ and without hesitation, he appointed Martin Odegaard as his club captain.
Saka and Odegaard will return to duty at the Emirates on Sunday in a crucial game against Manchester United in the Premier League.
