Brazil head coach Tite has admitted his deep admiration for Arsenal flyer Bukayo Saka.

The young Nigerian born winger has been one of the club’s best performers this past season, helping them to a fifth placed finish in the Premier League.

As Tite prepares to lead Brazil into the 2022 World Cup in December, he spoke about some of the players he admires from other national teams.

When asked about England players, Tite told The Times: “I would go with [Arsenal’s Bukayo] Saka, who finished this Premier League season with 11 goals.

“I have a soft spot for fast, skinny legs. And he is the kind of player that you can never control.

“You may well try to pressure him, chase him wherever he goes, but you’ll never fully control his actions.”
