The Kim-Saka combo was a delight for the fans of Kim and Saka. Kim Kardashian was present with her son Saint West in the Arsenal stands when Sporting CP surprised the Gunners on their own turf.
Sporting held Arsenal when they paid the visit to the Portuguese side in the first leg with a score of 2-2.
Arenal were considered heavy favorites for the return leg in Emirates which they showed when Granit Xhaka opened the scoring for Arsenal in the 19th minute.
But a potential Puskás award-winning goal by Pedro Goncalves from the half-line equalized the score in the 62nd minute.
No one emerged as the winner even after playing 120 minutes and the match went on to the penalties. Sporting CP emerged as the winner after the penalty by Gabriel Martnelli was saved by Antonio Adan.
Kim Kardashian watched as the Gunners were eliminated from Europa League and shared several sweet snapshots and clips from the game with her son.
She famously shot the Saka penalty which she posted on Instagram with snaps of her son supporting the 21-year-old international as he puts it in.
Kim was unable to meet Saka after the match due to the loss but he compensated for this with a FaceTime with her children and their friends the very next day. Kim posted the video of the FaceTime.
At the start of the facetime Saka apologized to the children by saying: “Sorry, I missed you guys yesterday. They said that you were in the players’ lounge. I had one shirt for you.”
Kim and one other person encouraged her children to tell Saka that they would return when Arsenal win the league. But her children used the term “if you win” which prompted laughter from both Kim and Saka.
Saka replied: “Tell them to let me know when they’re coming back, and I’ll sort them some T-shirts.”
Kim and Saka both posted pictures from the FaceTime call with the American Personality writing “Thank you for making our boys’ day.”
This is not the first time that a famous personality has come out in support of the Gunners.
According to football.london, famous rapper Jay-Z and actors like Jamie Foxx, Matt Damon, and Andrew Garfield have also shown support for Arsenal.
Arsenal is one of the most famous clubs in the world even though they are not the most successful club in the Premier League. Manchester United is way ahead of the Gunners in winning the Premier League, who have just 3 in the bag.
It has been 19 years since Arsenal won the league, but this time, they might just make it four. With a five-point lead at the top and just 11 matches to go this Arsenal team would be fully focused on winning the league.
Saka is one of the most important players for Arsenal this season with 27 appearances in the Premier League scoring 10 and assisting 9. If Arsenal wants to win the league then Saka has to remain consistent in the remaining 11 matches.
