'Never heard of him': Conor Coady says Arsenal's Bukayo Saka somehow doesn't know one of the biggest celebs in the world

Conor Coady has told England’s official Twitter account that Arsenal star Bukayo Saka somehow doesn’t know one of the biggest celebrities in the world – Leonardo DiCaprio. 

Saka has been a standout performer for England at this year’s World Cup and has now bagged three goals in as many games. 

The 21-year-old has been flourishing into one of the best young players in Europe under Mikel Arteta and is now announcing himself on the biggest stage in Qatar. 

England have set-up a mouthwatering clash with France on Saturday after beating Senegal 3-0. Saka got amongst the goals with a delightful chip over Chelsea shot stopper Edouard Mendy. 

He’s proving to be a key player for Gareth Southgate after playing a lesser role in last year’s Euros. Now, Coady has shared a funny story about Saka from the tournament and claims the Gunners youngster didn’t know who Leonardo DiCaprio was.

Coady says Saka doesn’t know DiCaprio

Speaking in the Diary Room, Coady reflected on Saka meeting David Beckham and says everyone loves the Arsenal youngster. 

“He [Beckham] liked B! Everyone likes B. Little story from in the Euros, we had something to eat and a few lads were on about films – and I’m talking big films, ones that everyone knows, and big actors,” Coady said. 

“I’m talking like Leo Di Caprio, like big hitters, and he’s there like ‘nah, never heard of him’. That’s B in a nutshell, people love him but he’s just a young kid who loves playing football and he’s playing at the highest level! He’s a fantastic person.”

Of course, DiCaprio is one of the most famous actors in the world and is known for starring in films like Titanic, The Wolf of Wall Street and Catch Me If You Can, plus many more. 

It’s brilliant to hear Coady talk about Saka with such high praise though and the youngster seems to be a popular member of the England set-up. 

Saka’s focus seems to be solely on playing football and that’s brilliant news for both Arsenal and England. 

The Three Lions face a huge clash against France on Saturday evening and while Saka’s knowledge on celebrities may not be the best, he’ll be key to England’s hopes of beating Didier Deschamps’ side.
