William Saliba confirms he would be open to staying at Marseille next season

Having been suspended for the game, speaking in the mixed zone after Marseille’s 4-0 win over Strasbourg, Arsenal loanee William Saliba expressed his jubilation at OM qualifying for the Champions League group stages for next season after a late Lens equaliser against Monaco. The 21-year-old said:

“In the stands, from the third goal, we watched the Lens match on my phone. On the last free-kick, we all jumped up! It was magnificent…”

“The atmosphere [here] was incredible. The season was long and difficult, our rivals didn’t give up but we deserved second place. At the end of the match, it was chaos, we were shouting, we lost our voices, everyone was hugging…”

When asked if the evening made him want to stay at the club for next season, Saliba said:

“We’ll see! But even so, we’ll sleep well because this was our main target – to finish second and make the Champions League. After that, we’ll see… We’ll see during these two months of the transfer window but, if I come back, it will be with great pleasure.”

Asked if Marseille making the Champions League and Arsenal missing out made any difference, the defender explained:

“You’ll get me in trouble! But, of course, as footballers we all want to play in the Champions League. Especially me, who hasn’t played in it yet, and especially in a stadium like this… We’re very proud and I, for sure, would with great pleasure play here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.”
