Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has doused tension concerning the Bukayo Saka’s injury in their 5-0 drubbing of Nottingham Forest on Sunday over the weekend in the English Premier League.
Recall that Saka couldn’t complete the match after leaping off the pitch in the second half and was replaced by Reiss Nelson.
Speaking post-match, Arteta admitted Saka got a ‘bad kick’ but did not initially fear anything more serious.
“Hopefully not [the World Cup in doubt],” Arteta told a press conference.
“It was a bad kick, he was limping but I don’t see it further than that. Both foot and ankle, he got kicked a few times.”
Nelson, who came on to replace Saka inside half an hour, scored two goals and provided an assist in the encounter.
