Nigerian born Arsenal’s youngster Bukayo Saka was caught in the middle of huge disagreement between the manager Unai Emery, fans and Club Captain Granit Xhaka in Sunday’s English premier league game on Sunday.
The Gunners raced to a two goals lead in ten minutes, courtesy of David Luiz and Sokratis , but Crystal Palace crawled back into the game and got a goal back through Luka Milivojevic ( pen) and Jordan Ayew in the 32nd and 52nd minutes of the game respectively.
However pressure continued to pile on Unai Emery who decided to replace Club Captain Granit Xhaka with Bukayo Saka in the 61st minutes.
The move to replace Xhaka with Saka was welcomed with roars of delight from Arsenal’s fans, but the newly-appointed captain reacting angrily to jeers at his slow departure by waving and cupping his ear sarcastically to the home support, exchanging words before taking off his shirt and disappearing down the tunnel.
Saka however failed to changed the dimension of the game , as he appeared stunned with what went down between his captain, coach and their supporters.
Saka will hope to return to the Arsenal’s line up in Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool at the Anfield on Wednesday.
