Saka recently revealed that even if he is very proud of his Nigerian heritage, he feels picking England was the right decision.
According to him, he still watches Super Eagles matches and he’ll keep supporting his country during competitions in Africa.
He added that his dad was born in England while his mum was born in Nigeria, but they both grew up in the African nation and met each other there.
His words, “I feel like I’m really, really proud of my Nigerian heritage,”
“I always still watch Nigeria’s games where I can and I wish them all the best and support them all the way, but I’ve seen the process of how England are transforming and I think in the future they’re going to do great stuff.
“I feel like it was right for me to choose England.”
“My dad was born here, my mum was born in Nigeria, but they both grew up in Nigeria and met each other in Nigeria,”
“They came over and when they came to England it wasn’t easy for them because obviously, it’s a new country.
“It’s really cold for them, but they adapted well, and as soon as they had me and my brother they always left everything out the way and put us first.
“Especially my football career, my dad always pushed me, he took me to training on days where sometimes it would take two hours to get to training, so I’ll always be so grateful for my parents for the work they’ve done for me.”
