Arsenal sends a message to their wonder-kid Bukayo Saka after he misses a penalty shot out in Euro 2020 final.
England loses to Italy in the European League competition 2020 during penalty short out.
Gareth Southgate’s side came agonizingly close to winning their first trophy since 1966
However, youngster Saka saw his spot-kick saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho also missed their penalties.
Arsenal have defended their player and sent a strong message of support via their official site today
and one can only hope they are there to help the 19-year-old through this challenging period
“Last night, we saw Bukayo Saka reach the Euro 2020 final at the age of 19 years old.
Bukayo has been with us since he was seven and the whole club couldn’t have been
prouder to see him represent England throughout the tournament.”
You could feel it right across the club.
“Last night we witnessed the leadership and character we’ve always known and loved in Bukayo.”
“However, this feeling of pride quickly turned to sorrow at the racist comments our young player
It was subjected to on his social media platforms after the final whistle.”
“Once again, we are sad to have to say we condemn the racism of several black players.”
“This cannot continue and the social media platforms and authorities must act immediately
to ensure this disgusting abuse to which our players are subjected daily stops now.”
“However, We have processes in place internally at Arsenal to ensure our players are supported”
“both emotionally and practically on this issue but sadly there is only so much we can do.”
Our message to Bukayo is;
“hold your head high, we are so very proud of you and we cannot wait to welcome you back home to Arsenal soon”
