Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta speaks out on William Saliba & Gabriel fight

William Saliba and Gabriel got into a confrontation after Arsenal’s last outing.


Arsenal faced off with Leicester City on Saturday in a tie they had to win to ensure they stayed top of the Premier League.

The Gunners came out on top vs the Foxes thanks to an effort from Gabriel Martinelli.

But despite winning, Saliba and Gabriel got into a fight post-match.

Footage of the centre-backs pushing each other on the pitch at the King Power Stadium on Saturday went viral on social media after the Gunners’ 1-0 victory.

But Mikel Arteta is adamant there has been no fallout between the pair and he is pleased to see that level of passion from his players:

“They are a happy marriage! They love playing with each other, but they are really demanding with each other - which is good,” said Arteta. “Everything is fine.

“I don’t want robots. I want players with feeling, with passion that makes demands of each other but at the end they have that chemistry.

“Those two certainly have that chemistry on and off the field and I love that, even when winning, they want to do better.”
