Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka has sung the praises of former Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Oleks Zinchenko.
Saka and Zinchenko go head to head in Sunday’s Euro 2024 qualifier between England and Ukraine. Ahead of the game, Saka has spoken on the influence his team-mate has made at club level.
He said: “Zinchenko has brought quality – but he’s brought so much more. You can see how he plays and how he controls the game. He’s an outstanding player.
“He has great leadership qualities, so he’s really helping us on all fronts. They (Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus) have brought that winning mentality to us as players who have been there and won the league.
“In difficult moments they know how it feels, they can encourage us because we have a lot of young players. They really help us with the mental side of things.”
