Kim Kardashian, an American social media celebrity, was a spectator at the Emirates Stadium, as Arsenal were eliminated from the Europa League by Sporting Lisbon. The match ended in a 1-1 tie, moving on to a penalty shootout. Although Saka scored in the shootout, his team was eliminated because Aaron Ramsdale couldn’t save any of Lisbon’s attempts.
After Arsenal’s loss, Kardashian took to Instagram to share photos of her son Saint’s disappointment. Saint is an avid supporter of the Arsenal football club. On his special day, he even wore a Gunners shirt as a nod to his favorite team.
Saka and Kardashian couldn’t meet with each other during the matchday. Saka was then FaceTiming with Kim, her son, and his friends the following day, as Kim posted on her Instagram story.
In the clip, Saka says, “Sorry, I missed you guys yesterday. They said that you were in the players’ lounge. “I had one shirt for you.”
One kid went on to reply “We’re going to come back if you win the Premier League!” to which Saka smiled and said, “Tell them to let me know when they’re coming back, and I’ll sort you some T-shirts.”

How well has Bukayo Saka done this season?
Mikel Arteta’s Premier League table-topping Arsenal squad would not be where it is today without Bukayo Saka’s contributions. So far, he has 11 goals and 9 assists in 37 appearances for Arsenal this season. However, the numbers don’t speak to his performance at all.
The young Englishman’s ability to dribble in one-on-one situations has created numerous scoring chances for the Gunners. Moreover, he was extremely flexible, capable of performing equally well in either the right or left wing roles. Mikel Arteta is surely bringing out the best in him.
Saka did very well at the 2022 World Cup as well. He was a top performer for England at the World Cup. In the quarterfinal match against France, Saka had a dominant performance but was unable to score a goal. The final score was 2-1, and England was eliminated from World Cup contention.
The London Football Awards recently presented Bukayo Saka with the Young Player of the Year trophy. He is surely going to perform at the top level for many years to come.
