Arsenal legend Ian Wright has issued a warning to manager Mikel Arteta regarding the use of young star Bukayo Saka. Wright expressed concerns about Saka’s physicality and the potential for him to be targeted by opponents, which could hinder his performance and put him at risk of injury.

Speaking on the Handbrake Off podcast, Wright highlighted the importance of protecting Saka and managing his playing time effectively. He emphasized that Saka’s contribution is crucial to Arsenal’s success and that he should be rested when necessary to ensure his long-term availability and performance.

“Sometimes you are worried because if Arsenal are to achieve anything, he is going to be one of the main reasons we get to what we want to get to. I think we’ll get there, but as long as he is managed very well.” said Ian Wright.

Saka, who is just 22 years old, played a significant role for Arsenal last season and has already started in all matches played this season. His versatility and skill have made him a key player for the team, but Wright believes that his physicality makes him vulnerable to rough treatment from opponents.

Wright’s concerns are not unfounded, as Saka has been subjected to several rough challenges in recent matches. The fear is that if he continues to be targeted, it could affect his form and potentially lead to injuries that could sideline him for extended periods.

Arteta will need to carefully manage Saka’s playing time and consider resting him in certain games to protect him from excessive physicality. This will ensure that Saka remains fresh and injury-free, allowing him to continue making significant contributions to Arsenal’s success.

The warning from a club legend like Ian Wright serves as a reminder of the importance of managing young talents like Saka with care. Arteta will need to strike a balance between utilizing Saka’s abilities and ensuring his long-term well-being.

I am a very stubborn person who is always very argumentative in football discussions but I always win. I like writing about transfer news most.
