Arsenal: Saka Vs Smith Rowe, A New Young and Fresh Arsenal, Youth Academy Report

Bukayo Saka Vs Smith Rowe

An online debate on whether Bukayo Saka is better than Emile Smith Rowe has taken over the internet as Arsenal fans gave their opinion on who is the better attacker. Bukayo Saka is a fan darling for sure because of how well he relates with the fans and his teammates. He also shows a lot of potential on the pitch and his confidence to play great football is on another level.

Emile Smith Rowe on the other hand is a determined and very hard-working player both in training and on the pitch. He has good chemistry with the senior players but not so much with the fans. However, he makes it up with his consistent performances something which Bukayo Saka lacks. Smith Rowe is versatile and can literally play in any attacking position and give results. So who is your favorite between the two? For me, it’s Smith Rowe.

Per Mertesacker

Arsenal Academy football director Per Mertesacker has said that producing young talents such as Bukayo Saka and Smith Rowe from Hale End has been an exciting journey both for him and all those who have been devoting their time to nurturing such young talents in the Arsenal Academy. He said that it has not been easy since there have been a lot of downs than ups, but the fraternity’s unwavering willingness to mold young players has seen them through.

He said that the Academy’s vision is to produce and nurture quality talents who will offer a unique football experience to the fans and other players. He added that more players are coming through the ranks and have shown very high prospects of becoming great footballers. He thanked the Arsenal board for their immeasurable support both financially and socially. He also appreciated Mikel Arteta’s occasional input into what should be executed in the Academy camp and his frequent involvement in mentoring the young players.

Summer signings

All six of Arsenal’s summer signings made appearances for the Gunners in the North London Derby but Mikel Arteta is yet to find the right formula to fit them in the Arsenal squad. Nuno Tavares and Sambi Lokonga are yet to fully settle in the first eleven and plans have accordingly been drafted to ensure that they soon become regular starters for the Gunners. It will not be easy for Arteta to convince the fans to support a young squad, but it is worth a try because all the players have shown a lot of promise.
