David Beckham labels Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka as quality
The Manchester United icon was impressed by Saka during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Arsenal winger scored three goals in four appearances for England, who bowed out in the quarterfinals.
David Beckham was an ambassador for the FIFA World Cup and watched his home nation impress despite their heartbreaking exit to France in the last eight.
He lauded Saka as a quality player alongside Borussia Dortmund teenager Jude Bellingham. The former PSG midfielder also explained how beneficial the tournament would be for Gareth Southgate's young squad. He told Beanymansports:
"You look at the quality of Bukayo Saka and then you look at the quality of Jude Bellingham and the players that we have coming through in our country."
"I think it’s a real positive. These tournaments whether you win them or get knocked out early, it’s always an experience that you can take on to the next game or the next tournament."
