Bukayo Saka

Former England Women’s International, Eniola Aluko, has revealed the advice which she gave Arsenal starlet, Bukayo Saka, which might be helping him today.

The Nigeria-born 33-year-old, who played for Chelsea and Juventus women and is currently the Sporting Director of Aston Villa women, has a close relationship with Saka and gave him tips on staying fit during games.

Aluko revealed: “I know Saka’s family well. When he was a bit younger, I told them I soaked in a magnesium bath the day before a game to prevent cramp.

“Bukayo started doing the same thing and he’s flown ever since. He’s never had that problem with cramp since, so I’m definitely taking the credit for that!”

Saka has now scored two goals and notched an assist in his past three league games as he has started in a variety of positions for Arsenal this season, having broken into the first team last season at 19 years old.

“There have been jokes that Arsenal are part of a relegation battle, but they’re on the way back up and Saka has been part of that.” Aluko told The Kings of The Premier League show. He’s really influential for such a young player, in terms of chances created and scoring goals.”

Aluko is the elder sibling of Sone Aluko who was capped seven times by the Super Eagles of Nigeria. Her experience at the top level of football seems to have helped Saka get off to a good start to his career.

The youngster would look to continue his good form for Mikel Arteta’s men as the Gunners have enjoyed three consecutive Premier League wins after their worst start to a Premier League season.
