William Saliba ‘doesn’t care’ about Arsenal nightmare as Marseille call him among ‘best in Europe’

ARSENAL loanee William Saliba “doesn’t care” about his Emirates nightmare that has seen him falling down the pecking order and being loaned around.

Saliba joined the Gunners from Saint-Etienne in 2019 following a £27million deal with plenty of promise but has since failed to make a single senior appearance for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Instead, the centre-back was immediately sent back on loan to the Ligue 1 side from which he was purchased before moving to Nice on the same terms two years later.

The 20-year-old failed to make Arteta’s plans ahead of this coming season and so he was loaned out to Marseille.

Nevertheless, the young Frenchman insists he didn’t leave for England too early and is only focused on the OM, where he pushed to go as the north Londoners preferred him to join an English club to gain experience.

Saliba said after his presentation by the French giants: “I don’t think I left for England too early. I don’t care about all that.


“I chose OM because it is the right choice. I pushed to come here. We will see what will happen next season.”

Marseille president Pablo Longoria, on the other hand, is very excited with Saliba’s arrival at the Velodrome.

Longoria has so much faith in the team’s latest transfer that he described the Arsenal ace as “one of the best modern centre-backs in Europe”.
