Bukayo Saka Is England Men’s Player for 2021/22

Nigeria’s Arsenal’s star, Busayo Saka has won the England Men’s Player of the Year award for the first time.

This comes after his last season’s performance for Arsenal and country. Saka played a pivotal role in Arsenal’s resurgence last season placing fifth in the Premier League thus earning the EUFA Europa League ticket.

The 21-year-old beat Tottenham Hotspur’s star Harry Kane and West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice to win the award, having shown a superb display of his talent over the course of the past year.

Saka is expected to be in the game of England against Italy in Milan tonight as they look to recover from a poor UEFA Nations League campaign.

He was presented the award by a group of young local grassroots players.

The England star had no idea that it was to be awarded to him, and in his grateful shock, he smiled and humbly said: “No way. I did not expect this honestly, so yeah, I’m honoured. It’s really nice.”
