Arsenal are clearly trying not to make a big deal out of it, and understandably so. After all, the main focus this week is on the FA Cup final, which Saliba can’t play in. He’s ineligible following his loan back to Saint-Etienne, despite that loan ending in June.
Still, it’s good to see the player getting involved in training before the end of the season. It’s an extra week of settling in for him ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
The chance for Saliba to test his skills against the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (and vice-versa) is definitely a positive thing.
Saliba spent part of last week back in France watching Saint-Etienne face Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France final. Unfortunately, they slipped to a 1-0 defeat.
