Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan has told Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka that he is not yet a ‘world-class’ player.
Jordan wants the Arsenal star to realise that he is yet to reach the status of players such as Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.
He, however, acknowledged the fact that the England international possesses a huge talent but warned fans against calling Saka world-class since that could only be a ‘false equivalency’.
“This idea that we need to tell every English player that once they hit a vein of form that they’re world-class is a false equivalency for me,” he told talkSPORT.
“Saka is a very good player but when we talk about world-class, we talk about geniuses. We talk about Mbappe, we talk about the young kid at Real Madrid, Vinicius Junior, that I believe are geniuses.”
