Saka ever since the last Euros in 2021, has been one of the faces plastered on front pages of the English media and social media each time results turn negative for the Three Lions.

However, after the Arsenal star turned up for England against Switzerland to potentially win them the quarter final tie, Rio Ferdinand was quick to attack the racists media and trolls on the internet.

The former Manchester United defender prior to the games has been a staunch supporter of the Arsenal star, and right after the win against Switzerland, did not fail to praise Saka’s efforts, writing on his Twitter page:

“I would go as far as to say that Bukayo is the most important England player.” 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 I love you bro! ❤️”

Another social media personality also connected to Manchester United who also backed Saka is YouTuber, Mark Goldbridge.

Mark Goldbridge who never shies from criticizing England when they turn up with bad performances wrote via his Twitter handle, expressing his admiration for Saka’s mentality:

“Saka is an inspiration. Elite mentality & hard work on and off the pitch. Look at how Sancho & Rashford careers went after missing in that final. It ain’t easy to have that level of perseverance.”
