Salszburg’s Patson Daka likened to Aubameyang, Eto’o


RB Salzburg’s striker, Patson Daka, has been linked to Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Cameroonian legend Samuel Eto’o.

The 22-year-old Zambian international who has netted 34 goals in 61 matches for the Austrian side is currently being linked to join Arsenal as a possible replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

Zambia national team coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovic has tipped Daka to become one of Africa’s finest exports.

“I would say he’s on the road to replace what Samuel Eto’o once was in representing Africa and African football,” says the Chipolopolo coach.

“He could be compared to Sadio Mane or Samuel Eto’o, with the level of skill and speed that he has. With the sense for space, sense of positioning, in the right place at the right time.”

Micho says that Daka’s attitude as well his talent will see him go even further.

“I look at his football heart. I look at his football soul. And I look at his football mind,” he says.

“Knowing his heart, mind and soul, I’m fully convinced that he’s on a very good road to reach his full potential. I believe he has everything that it takes.

“Now the other factors are important; to choose the right environment where he could excel that would suit his potential.”

Daka’s prowess earned him the Confederation of African Football’s Young Player of the Year in 2017.
