Unfortunately for Rongier and for OM, it could well be the last one. Because Saliba is loaned without an option to buy in Marseille, and he must therefore theoretically return to the workforce of Arsenal. It would be a big blow for the Phocaeans, who would lose an indisputable holder, nominated for the title of best hope of the championship.
“He played everything, so he was able to show this maturity and regularity, it allowed him to grow, commented Jorge Sampaoli at a press conference. I hope the club will be able to retain him, he now knows the club and the environment. We hope, it would be important for us, but it will also depend on his club. »
According to La Provence, the trend is not very good for OM. While he absolutely did not fit into Mikel Arteta’s plans, Saliba showed enough to (finally) have his chance with the Gunners next season. According to those close to the player, a turnaround is always possible. But the game looks complicated for OM.
