'I can't even believe this', 'it's a disgrace': Some Arsenal fans left raging over club announcement
Arsenal have decided to send William Saliba out on loan again.
And plenty of Gunners fans aren’t the slightest bit impressed with the decision.
On Thursday, Arsenal announced that Saliba had completed a season-long loan move to Marseille.
The 20-year-old joined the Gunners from Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2019 for £27million.
Arsenal loaned Saliba back to Saint-Etienne for the remainder of the season, and went on to reach the French Cup final.
He then arrived at the Emirates Stadium last summer to much fanfare, and it was hoped that he’d stake a claim for a first-team place.
However, Mikel Arteta had other ideas, and Saliba has yet to make his Arsenal debut at senior level.
Indeed, the Frenchman went out on loan again at the start of 2021, and enjoyed a successful stint at Nice.
Now, Saliba will once again ply his trade in Ligue 1 instead of in North London.
Here is what some Arsenal fans said after the news broke:
Man , i can’t even believe this— 𝑴𝒈🥶 (@AFC_mgg) July 15, 2021
We go again next year 😪— 😤 (@6Z4CG) July 15, 2021
Arsenal owe us the fans an explanation regarding this player, you can’t sign a player and. Not even give him a single game to play this is disrespectful to the player and us the fans— Fulu b (@FMathabi) July 15, 2021
Signed a player for #27. Never played him for once; never gave him a chance to prove himself, only to loan him up and down. Only arsenal can be this.— Emele. E. Hephzibah (@hephzibah_e) July 15, 2021
You wouldn’t think this club at this very moment only employ Pablo Mari and Rob Holding as starting Centerbacks.— HxH👽 (@AfcKols_) July 15, 2021
It’s a disgrace
Loool what a joke! We shouldn’t be loaning players that are better than the pathetic first team squad we got!!!— Ryan Colaço (Ryan C™) #Arsenal #BlackLivesMatter (@Ryan_Colaco) July 15, 2021
