Bacary Sagna weighs in on William Saliba

Former Arsenal player Bacary Sagna has weighed in with his opinion on Arsenal defender, William Saliba who is currently on loan at Saint-Etienne. Saliba has impressed all and Sundry with his solid displays at the heart of the Saint-Etienne defence and Bacary Sana has now had his say on the young Frenchman's Arsenal prospects.

Sagna on Saliba: "First he will need to adapt to English football. He is a big prospect for the future but Arsenal need him to perform as soon as he starts. He is aware of that probably, but he has a lot of qualities and he will learn fast"

"He is very confident in defending, he is not afraid to defend one against one and most of the time he wins the duels, which is the best quality as a defender. You need some security, you need some presence and he has that" he concluded.

Sagna was further pressed on his Arsenal departure and his reason for leaving;
"To me, personally, if they wanted me to stay I would have stayed. But I didn’t feel like they did everything to make me stay"

This comes amongst a host of opinions and praises young defender William Saliba has received, with Mikel Silvestre previously saying Saliba would be a guaranteed starter immediately he arrives. Arsenal will hope all the hype proves right as they look for a long term defensive answer.
