In a much-anticipated homecoming, Bukayo Saka, a prominent member of the Arsenal first team, arrived in Lagos State, Nigeria, marking his first visit since his rise to prominence at the Emirates Stadium.
The talented player, who was born to Nigerian immigrants in the United Kingdom, took to his official Instagram account on Thursday, June 1st, 2023, to share a video of himself, accompanied by the caption, “E kuule o. Thank you for the warm welcome.”
While the Nigerian Football Federation had expressed interest in having Saka play for the Super Eagles, he ultimately decided to represent his birth country, England.
During his visit to Lagos, Saka paid a visit to an orphanage in Bariga, showcasing his compassionate side. Although the specific purpose of his visit was not disclosed, it left a positive impact on those he interacted with.
The 21-year-old winger played a crucial role in Arsenal’s successful season, contributing significantly to the team’s second-place finish in the Premier League, just behind eventual winners Manchester City. Saka’s skill and dedication on the field have earned him a well-deserved place among football’s rising stars.
