A staunch Arsenal fan, Archbishop Kazimba enjoyed every little bit of the Gunners triumph over North London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs over the weekend.
Archbishop Stephen Kazimba reveals 3 things he’s learning from Arsenal’s Saka
Archbishop Church of Uganda Stephen Kazimba has revealed three things he’s learning from Arsenal’s on-form forward Bukayo Saka.
The cleric was full of praise of Saka’s efforts in the game which included the opening goal against Tottenham scoring from an ‘almost impossible’ angle to beat veteran goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Saka running the show on the right flank proved too much for Tottenham to handle and would open the scoring forcing Hugo Lloris to an own goal.
He ran onto a long ball down the right and cut inside Ryan Ssesegnon, beating him easily. Saka blasted a powerful strike from a seemingly impossible angle straight at Lloris who failed to get good hold of it and squirmed it into his own net.
Hoisting Arsenal eight points clear at the summit of the English Premier League table, Kazimba made his feelings clear on Twitter.
"Our boys did it again. Arsenal, the Gunners! And for Man Utd fans, congratulations upon yesterday's win. Pray hard to maintain the momentum. Soccer becomes nice when Giants win and compete. That's why they say soccer is soccer," Kazimba wrote on Twitter.
He noted that he’s learning three key areas from Saka and these include; strategic positioning, teamwork and teamwork. He further added that Saka is a prayerful person.
"I always refer Bukayo Saka whenever I am talking about strategic positioning. @BukayoSaka87 knows how to position himself well during the game and values teamwork. I learn the following from him; 1) Strategic positioning, 2) Teamwork. I think he is equally prayerful."
Ahead of the 2022 World Cup Qatar, Saka revealed that he reads the Bible to keep his mind off the pressure and stress of football, something that could have struck a cord with the servant of God.
"I read my Bible every night. For me, it's really important to have the presence of God in me all the time and it gives me more confidence to know that God's plan is perfect, so I can go on the pitch and know that God has my back," he said last month.
"But the main thing for me is just keeping my faith. You know just having faith in God, so I don't need to be nervous or worry about any outcomes because, obviously, it's my first World Cup.
