Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has fumed at the Gunners' treatment of William Saliba – who is currently out on loan at Marseille.
“I think it’s a real shame. They didn’t let him make a mistake. He was sent away without even being able to make a mistake. He didn’t have the chance to prove himself," Henry fumed to Amazon Prime after Saliba continued to impress in France.
He added: “What he is doing here is extraordinary. He was rewarded with a selection for the France team. At the moment, he belongs to Arsenal, I don’t know where he will end up."
Saliba has been at Arsenal for the past two seasons, but he's yet to make a competitive appearance under Mikel Arteta.
He recently revealed: “My wish is to finish the season well, to leave on a good note in case I don’t come back. It would be my pleasure to come back no matter what, it’s not as if I know I’m not going to come back, it’s Marseille, it’s my club.
"Champions League with OM? When you see the atmosphere in the Conference League or in Ligue 1, I can’t even imagine what it would be like on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening.”

This season, the 21-year-old has broken into the French national side – earning two national caps after impressing in Ligue 1.
Saliba moved to Arsenal in 2019, but he has since spent time out on loan at Saint-Etienne, Nice, and Marseille.
