Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka, has heaped praises on Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo, for his commitment to the game.

The Al Nassr star is one of the greatest goalscorers of the game with 885 senior career goals for club and country in  1,200 professional career appearances and Saka believes the 39-year-old’s goal-scoring ability is a big motivation to a lot of other footballers.

“He was a perfect example of that. He just exploded and turned into a goalscoring machine, and I think he inspired a lot of players to try and follow in his footsteps,” Saka told The Mirror.

Saka revealed that just like Ronaldo, Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta, has set a challenge for him to become a player that can handle 60-70 games a season with ease.

“He [Arteta] told me the elite players all do it, so if I want to get to that level, I have to be ready to play that many games and try and help my team win each of those games as well,” he added

The 22-year-old  has made impressive progress in that quest, passing 200 appearances for Arsenal and 50 senior goals. He also has 32 caps for the Three Lions.
