Bukayo Saka sends message to Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta over preferred position

Bukayo Saka says he will play anywhere for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta after another impressive display by the teenager.

This week, Saka committed his long-term future to the club when he put pen to paper on a new contract.

And he celebrated it by returning to the starting line up and then producing a fine finish to open the scoring against Wolves.

Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench in the second half and finished expertly to wrap up all three points for the Gunners.

It was the first time since November 2017 that Arsenal have won three consecutive league games without conceding.

And it was also their first away league victory against a side starting above them in the league table since September 2015.

For Saka, it was his first goal in the Premier League and at 18 years and 303 days, he’s the second youngest English player to score in the Premier League for the Gunners.

In his short career at Arsenal, Saka has played in a variety of position and today he played on the right side of the attack.

And after the match, he hailed his team-mates and sent a message to Arteta after being asked if he had a preference on where he played.

“We fought for each other together; the subs helped us so much. It feels like we’re together.

“I’m 18 and it’s a dream to play for this club; I came up from the academy this season.

“Wherever the boss puts me, I have to try and give my best. I’m so grateful to be here.”
