Top defender from all the youth tournaments last year. Next gen best defender, oh how the footballing world makes you look a fool.

You get kicks out of mocking a 19yo who's parents both died while they were out the country?

Typical non-football fan. Runs their mouth off when not knowing anything. Lets hope Saliba is not there mocking your parents funeral. He is now justified to do so.

Its BBC wanting to knock Arsenal for anything they can. Even taking advantage of a kid who's parents dies.

They just want trolls to get on board.

Saliba is a quality player. Surely Arsenal need a player like that in their squad. Letting him go on loan is the definition of madness.

To understand why Arsenal (over) paid for Saliba you need look no further than Sanllehi. As head of football he 'convinced' the board to pay £30m to St Etienne - I wonder how much ended up in one of his off-shore accounts. Of course he was just warming up for the Pepe deal!

Heard that he wanted to be with family after the death of his mother, and as a teenager I think it makes sense that they loaned him back to France. Hopefully they have the sense to play him in the future because he's a great talent.

Raul saw how desperate Arsenal were and took advantage. Never understood why a complete stranger was given such an important role at the club (probably because he had Barca on his cv). Mislintat saw the chaos at Arsenal and left sharpish!

There needs to be more accountability. The board have been spending and 'backing' managers, but the people they have running the club are useless.

I was almost 50 when I lost my Dad after a long battle with dementia. Knocked me for six.

Massive talent, to many armchair fans that watch some youtube videos and forget this is a 19 year old kid thats been through alot of stress.

Getting flung into a team that was struggling and expecting miracles was always a bad idea, good management from Arteta.

In Mari i think Arsenal have found a class CB for the moment anyway along with Gabriel and Holding, well stocked in that area.

You can see why he would be hacked off with Arsenal as they have messed him around so much. No one was going to know that his chances of playing for Saint-Étienne on loan last season would be curtailed by a pandemic but they were certainly wrong stopping him playing in the French Cup Final which was bound to upset him. The way the loan collapsed in August was embarrassing and the final straw!.

How do could someone condemn a troubled young mind that has not even been given a chance?
Kieran Tierney joined last season injured and hardly played regularly, was written off, and today we're all cheering his constant impressive displays.
Let's allow him recover emotionally first. I just pray he does.

As and when he comes through all this, should see a very good player emerge. for whatever reason if you are not ready, you are not ready. Talent alone has never been enough.
