I must commend Him,He is one of the best player I have ever came across since I started my career as a COACH’: Brentford Manager Thomas frank single out One Arsenal player for His impressive performance yesterday
In the aftermath of yesterday’s game, Brentford’s manager, Thomas Frank, heaped praise on Arsenal’s dynamic duo, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.
Speaking with Match of the Day, Frank lauded them as “two of the best” wingers in the fiercely competitive Premier League.
Despite the Gunners securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory at the Gtech Community Stadium with a late goal from Kai Havertz, Brentford’s resilience posed challenges for Arsenal.
Leandro Trossard’s first-half effort, ruled out for offside, underscored the difficulties the Gunners faced in breaking down the determined Brentford side.
Saka and Martinelli, positioned on the flanks, encountered difficulties in creating space against Brentford’s well-organized defensive setup.
However, Saka showcased a moment of brilliance when it mattered most, delivering what was described as an “amazing” ball into the box for Havertz’s game-winning goal.
Thomas Frank, acknowledging his team’s effective management of Saka and Martinelli for the majority of the game, admitted that it was a single exceptional action from Saka that ultimately cost Brentford a point.
Frank expressed, “I think we did a top job to keep two of the best wingers in the league quiet throughout the game. So, it was just one top action from Saka in the end and great movement from Havertz.”
While Saka and Martinelli may not have consistently hit their scintillating best this season, their knack for making crucial contributions remains evident.
Premier League opponents are acutely aware of the threat posed by these dynamic wingers, often adopting strategies to limit their space on the flanks.
In the recent match, Brentford’s resolute defense thwarted Saka and Martinelli’s attempts to find space until the dying moments.
Despite the challenges, Saka’s game-changing cross highlighted why he is regarded as one of the premier wingers in the league, proving that even with limited space, he can deliver pivotal moments for Arsenal.
As the season progresses, the performances of Saka and Martinelli continue to be closely watched, with their ability to impact games undiminished.
