Ex premier League player Rio Ferdinand lavished praises on Arsenal centre back William Saliba following the Gunners victory over Manchester City.

The Gunners won by a solitary goal thanks to Gabriel Martinelli.

Gabriel Magalhaes and Saliba were able to contain Haaland for the full 90 minutes. Ferdinand speaking on his podcast said:

“He’s cool as you like with and without the ball. I don’t think he’s been dribbled past in eight games. There was one moment I stopped the game and rewound it for me son because he plays centre-back.”

“I said ‘watch this’! The ball gets played and he’s on the halfway line with Haaland. He’s giving all centre backs sleepless nights based on what he did last season.”

“Saliba, the last person he saw before he went to sleep wouldn’t have been his missus, it would’ve been Haaland’s face.”
