Saliba Complains Mikel Arteta Has Him Locked Up At Arsenal

William Saliba hasn't been given much of a chance by Arsenal since signing in the summer, making just two appearances for the club - in the Papa John's Trophy.

This is despite fans highly anticipating his arrival a the Emirates as part of the plan to solve the Gunners' woe in defence, and playing in 12 matches for Saint Ettiene in Ligue 1 last season.

Supporters have begun to doubt manager Mikel Arteta's treatment of the 19-year-old, with performances not exactly vindicating the coach's decision to freeze out certain players.

Arsenal are currently languishing in 15th in the Premier League, with a paltry 13 points from the first 11 games.

Saliba was caught on Instagram complaining about how he has been treated this season, while he spoke to former Arsenal man Matteo Guendouzi.

Guendouzi went through a similar situation before being sent out on loan to Hertha BSC this season.

Saliba commented on a post from his fellow Frenchman celebrating his first goal for the German side, with a fire emoji, before teammate Nicolas Pepe entered to comment: "This is your problem, you comment on everything."

Saliba replied to the winger: "Hahaha, I'm sending well wishes to the brother that was locked up like me."

Guendouzi sympathised: "We are together bro."

Arsenal face Burnley on Sunday, with some pundits believing that a defeat could leave Arteta in danger of losing his job. If the former Everton player were to be removed, it could mean another chance for Saliba to prove himself at the club.
