Despite scoring an own goal in Saturday’s 4-2 victory against Leicester City, Saliba has performed admirably in the Gunners’ first two Premier League matches.
O’Hara, who spent six years at Spurs from 2005 to 2011, where he won the League Cup, had previously criticized Arsenal for choosing to buy Saliba, but he has since altered his mind about the 21-year-old center-back.

Saliba joined Arsenal in 2019, however he was forced to spend the previous three seasons on loan.
Speaking on TalkSPORT he said:
I’ll apologise, I absolutely got that wrong. He is the real deal, what a signing. What a player he is and I know that he’s young but he could be sensational.
He’s still got things to work on, like his positioning, but he looks really, really good.
