Arsenal attacker Saka admits being big football fan; happy with huge crowds

Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka admits he's a big football fan.

Saka says he watches the two live Premier League games on Saturdays IF he's not paying himself.

He told Arsenal's official website: "It's hard to say exactly how much football I watch during the week because it depends on when we're playing, but if I'm free I'll definitely watch the two live games on a Saturday.

"I mostly watch the Premier League but if there's a big game on in LaLiga, the Bundesliga or the French league, I'll watch it."

Saka also says he doesn't feel pressure despite having thousands inside a ground watching him, as well as hundreds of thousands to millions around the world.

He told the club website: "I don't feel the pressure playing in front of a big crowd.

"However many people are in the stadium, you know that the game is being streamed and there could be millions of people around the world watching you.

"For me, I'd say I'm my own biggest critic so before anyone else criticises me I've already done it myself and told myself to do better. Big crowds don't faze me."
