Ian Wright says he wouldn’t swap Bukayo Saka for prime Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry

Arsenal legend Ian Wright recently made headlines by declaring that he wouldn’t trade Bukayo Saka for prime Thierry Henry, Lionel Messi, or even Ronaldinho. Mikel Arteta’s squad boasts many world-class talents, but Saka stands out as Wright’s undisputed favorite.

In a candid video for Goal, Wright expressed his admiration for Saka, emphatically rejecting the idea of swapping him for any of the greatest names in football history.

Ian Wright Wouldn’t Swap Bukayo Saka for Prime Thierry Henry

When asked if he would exchange Saka for the legendary Thierry Henry, Wright’s response was unequivocal: “No, no, no, no. I’m not swapping him because we’re talking about now. I’m not swapping Saka for anyone now.”

Even when the interviewer mentioned prime Ronaldinho, Wright’s stance didn’t waver, responding with a swift, “No!”

Wright’s affection for Saka is understandable. The 22-year-old had a stellar 2023/24 season, scoring 20 goals and providing 14 assists across all competitions, marking his best performance to date. Saka’s consistency and growing influence on the pitch have made him a cornerstone of both Arsenal and the England national team.

This unwavering support from Wright highlights Saka’s immense value and potential. The young star’s relentless work ethic and impressive stats speak volumes about his importance to the team. However, Wright’s comments also underscore a crucial point: Saka needs rest. Injuries hampered his season, and Arteta must ensure his star gets adequate breaks.
