Saka’s hen party
Arsenal star Bukayo Saka confirmed that his most recent goal celebration was a tribute to Thierry Henry.
Saka helped the Gunners beat Aston Villa 4-2 in a dramatic encounter at Villa Park as he was the one that equalised after Ollie Watkins’ early opener.
The winger then celebrated by placing his right hand on the corner flag and his left on his hip while basking in his glory.
That was the same celebration Arsenal’s record goalscorer Henry would often use while playing for the North Londoners and France.
The England international took to Twitter after the whistle and confirmed that was a nod to the legendary forward, whom he called “the king”.
Saka tweeted: “Honouring the king.”
Fans loved the 21-year-old’s gesture and took to the comments’ section to brand him as Arsenal‘s next legend.
One supporter tweeted: “You’re next up!!!”
Another commented: “A Legend, and another in the making.
“One from [Arsene] Arsene, the other from [Mikel] Arteta – both A-list stars for Arsenal.”
