You judge me after two-and-a-half games: Saliba blasts Arsenal manager Arteta

Arsenal youngster William Saliba has continued his war of words with manager Mikel Arteta.

The Frenchman, who is currently on loan at Nice in France, believes he was not given a fair chance in the first half of the season.

Saliba is only 19, and arrived from Saint Etienne in the summer, but never got a proper chance with the first team.

"It's clear that a lot has changed in the last year," Saliba told RMC.

"When I saw the coach changed a lot changed for me too. In this year there has been a lot of change.

"He judged me on two-and-a-half games. I would have liked for him [Arteta] to play me more. But he told me I wasn't ready.

"I was waiting for him to give me a chance, but football is like that.

"When I initially came to Arsenal the league looked very good so I showed up to training and wanted to train on my own to show the coach I was ready.

"I am happy now, I want to play for Nice. The idea when you're part of a team is a better feeling for me."
