He may be nine years his senior, but Mohamed Elneny is still inspired by Bukayo Saka both on and off the pitch.
Our duo have started three games together this season and it’s the teenager’s attitude which has caught Elneny’s attention.
“I love him because he’s really humble, he’s like my little brother,” the Egypt international said. “He’s always laughing and I love him as well because every day I can feel that he wants to learn new things.
“This makes me think this guy will improve a lot because if you always come to training to try to learn from the people around you, when you have a chance to play and give 100 per cent all of the time and you love what you do, it’s only going to be good for him. I’m really happy for him.”
