Ex-Arsenal player, Mesut Ozil has come out to say that he respects Saka for daring to take a penalty at Euro 2020 final. He recently revealed that not many players would have volunteered to do what the youngster did.
According to him, he really felt for Saka after his miss because he also experienced the pain of missing a penalty during his career.
Ozil added that Bukayo Saka is definitely blessed with incredible talent and one missed penalty will not change that.
His words, “I felt very much for Bukayo. I know from my own experience how it feels to miss a penalty.”
“In a final, as the last one, to take on the responsibility of an entire nation as a young player – respect. Not many players would dare to do that.”
“Bukayo is a modest young player. I have gotten to know him as a very determined young man who works very hard for his dream and does everything he can to achieve it.”
“Bukayo is blessed with a talent that not many have.”
“If he remains as humble and determined as he already is, I am 100 per cent convinced that he has a great future ahead of him and can become a great player.”
“He’s really a great talent, and I’m sure that there are going to be many more big matches for the English national team for him in the future.”
