Fans Are Proclaiming William Saliba As The Premier League's Best Centre-Back

Fans Are Proclaiming William Saliba As The Premier League's Best Centre-Back

Following a decisive 3-1 victory for Arsenal over their London rivals Spurs earlier today, fans and pundits were lavishing praise on the Gunners' 21-year-old French centre back William Saliba.

The young defender has been on loan at Saint-Etienne, Nice, and Marseille in recent seasons, but was brought back to the Emirates ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

And while he has been at Arsenal since 2019, his presence at the back in recent games has given the feeling of a new multi-million euro star signing.

Saliba spoke to Arsenal .com this summer about his aims for the 2022/23 season, after being named Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year.

“I was very proud [to win the Young Player of the Year award] because the league has a lot of good young players, so it’s good for me but I want more.

“When I was on loan I watched every single [Arsenal] game because when I was there some players weren’t. I watched the games to see how they played, so when I was back it would be easier to play with those I hadn’t met before.

“It’s important that the fans are behind you, and I like it very much. I can’t wait to give back to them.

“We spoke a little bit on Monday and will speak more. My plan is to fight and work with the team, win as much as possible, and grow more.

“It feels good to be back and starting pre-season. I’m so excited to continue training and playing in the friendly games. It’s important to be here with the fans, as well as my teammates. I hope we’ll enjoy some good training and games which is important before the start of the season.”
