Arsenal boss Unai Emery was full of praise for the performance of teenager Bukayo Saka after he excelled in the 1-0 win over Qarabag
The 17-year-old was making his full debut having previously made two appearances as a substitute earlier on in the competition
Bukayo Saka came agonisingly close to becoming Arsenal’s youngest ever European scorer.
In his post-match press conference after the game, Emery was quick to single out the youngster’s starring contribution.
“Every young player, we have the responsibility to give them chances, first to train with us and to be demanding with their performances,” Emery began, as quoted by Arsenal’s official website.
“We give them these chances in the games like today, when we can do that. They show us in every match positive things. Today Saka also played with a good performance, with a very big personality and we were speaking at half-time.
“They were trying… his personality is very important for us to continue trying to go 1v1 and break lines with his quality. He played with a very big personality and sometimes with a very good performance.”
