Upon Arsenal’s victory, Bukayo Saka addresses Rio Ferdinand’s ‘Not World Class’ remarks

<p>16 goals in a season, a consistency that rivals the finest talent available right now, and the foundation of a squad that has won six straight Premier League games. Sufficiently top-notch? Bukayo Saka recently addressed the controversial remarks made by Rio Ferdinand.</p>

<p>Midweek saw Mikel Arteta’s team lose 1-0 to Porto in the Champions League, but they bounced back to win six straight Premier League games and reach 25 goals overall.</p>
<p>Arsenal thrashed Newcastle United 4-1 Wednesday night, dominating the Magpies from set pieces and scoring three of their four goals from them.</p>
<p>Saka has now scored seven goals in his previous five Premier League games, and the England international’s scoring run before halftime was only stopped by a brilliant save from Karius at the near post.</p>
<p>An interviewer questioned Saka about his recent form after the game.</p>
<p>Jules Breach, the interviewer, said, “16 goals so far this season, how about that finish as well? Some would call it world-class.”</p>
<p>Saka just chuckled and said, “No remark. I’m pleased that I scored another goal tonight, but I’m happier that I prevailed.</p>
<p>“I’m putting in a lot of effort and working hard every day. Of course, having excellent teammates who pass the ball skillfully to me also helps.</p>
<p>“We just need to keep working on this [form]; we’ve been putting in a lot of effort, and things are starting to click now.”</p>
<p>The whole story began when Ferdinand said in a TNT Sports interview that Saka would have to win championships to be included alongside players like Phil Foden of Manchester City. Ferdinand said, “I don’t think he [Saka] has done it at the top level winning trophies in a team like this.”</p>
<p>In addition, Ferdinand said in the same interview that Phil Foden has been a much more reliable player in pivotal times. Ferdinand said, “He’s [Phil Foden] done that against the best teams as well, consistently.”</p>
<p>In contrast, Bukayo Saka, the legendary player for Manchester United, thought it was premature to refer to the Arsenal player as “world-class.”</p>
<p>Ferdinand said, “I think Saka is more about; he needs the opportunity to perform at that platform, on that level, consistently, and see where he’s at and then we can consider him.”</p>
