Bixente: Arsenal defender Saliba must be patient in Qatar


Arsenal defender William Saliba is not likely to start for France at the World Cup.

The centre-back has made a huge impression in the Premier League with the Gunners so far this season.

Saliba and Gabriel are a huge reason why Arsenal are top of the league at present.

However, France have a plethora of centre-backs, including Raphael Varane, Jules Kounde, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, Ibrahima Konate, and Axel Disasi.

"He has developed extremely well over the past few months and he deserves a place in central defence for the Gunners," ex-France left-back Bixente Lizarazu told wettbasis.

“Now he will not start the World Cup as a regular player, but you never know what will happen afterwards.

“So far he has used his chance with the Equipe Tricolore during his deployment times. He can be thrown in at the deep end at any time, he will do his job with confidence and a lot of vigour. On the other hand, he certainly has a lot of competition from Liverpool's Ibrahima Konate and Bayern's Dayot Upamecano."
