Gary Lineker and James Maddison send Arsenal star message after London Football Awards win

The England international has scored ten goals and provided a further nine assists in the Premier League this season, helping his side to the top of the table with just 11 matches to go. After winning the award, Saka took to social media to send a heartfelt message to his fans.

“Thank you to the London Football Awards for awarding me Men’s Young Player of the Year,” he wrote on Instagram. “It’s an honour to win it for a second time and congratulations to all the other winners!”

Writing about the 21-year-old on Twitter, Lineker said: “An incredible impressive young man and a wonderful footballer. Congratulations @BukayoSaka87 (clapping emoji) (clapping emoji).”

Saka wasn’t the only Arsenal player to win an award, with Aaron Ramsdale winning goalkeeper of the year, Gunners captain Martin Odegaard winning the player of the year and Mikel Arteta completing the sweep by taking home the manager award.
