Bukayo Saka Shares Wholesome Moment With Young Fan On All Or Nothing Arsenal

Bukayo Saka Shares Wholesome Moment With Young Fan On All Or Nothing Arsenal
By Eoin Harrington Updated

Bukayo Saka seems like one of football's good guys, and the finale of All Or Nothing: Arsenal appears to confirm that fact.

The 20-year-old Arsenal winger was one of the stars of the Premier League season, and what was even more impressive was that he performed so well off the back of crushing disappointment at EURO 2020. Saka was the player who missed the decisive penalty in England's loss to Italy in the final on home soil.

The strength shown by Saka to bounce back and perform as he did was exceptional - especially given he also suffered abhorrent racial abuse for missing in the shootout, alongside fellow players Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

The trio received support from far and wide, even from fans of bitter rivals. The final episodes of All Or Nothing: Arsenal on Amazon Prime Video, however, reveal that one letter of support particularly touched Bukayo Saka. In a heartwarming moment, the cameras captured Saka making a young fan's dream come true as a thank you for his support.

Bukayo Saka treats young fan to kickabout on Emirates pitch

The outpouring of support for Bukayo Saka after the Euros final last year was heartening, but the fact that it was necessary at all speaks volumes about the issues in English football.

All Or Nothing: Arsenal on Amazon Prime Video has given fans an exclusive behind the scenes look at life at the North London club during the 2021-22 season.

The final episode of All Or Nothing: Arsenal captures Saka speaking about the support he received in the aftermath of EURO 2020.

Saka was particularly struck by one letter he received, saying:

After the Euros, there was a kid that sent me a letter with his pocket money.

He was talking about how sad he was for me and stuff, and said that he would love to play football with me in the park and have an ice cream with me and stuff. I never expected anything like that, especially for a young kid to give me his pocket money - that must mean a lot because I know when I was a kid, that money means everything.

The gesture from the young fan named Teddy appears to have really touched Bukayo Saka, and the show brought the two together in the Emirates.

Saka surprises young Teddy, who appears to be on a tour of the stadium, by granting him his wish.

Perhaps most beautifully of all - Saka arrives as Teddy is having his photo taken in front of the Arsenal star's jersey. Saka brings the young fan an ice cream - giving him the choice of chocolate or strawberry - and invites him for a kickabout on the pitch at Arsenal's 60,000 seater stadium.

Teddy appears in awe of the Arsenal star, and it is a truly beautiful moment shared between the two.

The producers ask Teddy why he wrote to Saka, to which he says: "Because people were being racist to Saka and bullying him."

The pair then share a wonderful game of football, on the pitch where Saka plies his trade. Saka encourages Teddy, and compares his skills to those of Arsenal centre back Ben White.

Bukayo Saka insists that the two will play together on the pitch for Arsenal one day - that would certainly be a lovely ending to what is already a touching friendship between the two.

Naturally, football fans were bowled over by the emotional scenes.

It is not the only heartwarming Saka moment in the series, as previous episodes showed him giving gifts to the backroom staff at Arsenal to celebrate Christmas.
