Arsenal defender Saliba endures difficult Nice debut

Arsenal defender William Saliba endured a difficult start to his loan with Nice.

Saliba received a yellow card in a 2-0 defeat as the Arsenal defender made his loan debut for Nice.

The centre-back sealed a move to the Ligue 1 side earlier this week after failing to make a single senior appearance for the Gunners this season.

Saliba was thrown into Nice's starting XI against Brest. But it wasn't the start he hoped for.

Eleven minutes into the clash Saliba was booked after trying to win the ball back having lost it with a heavy touch.

While neither was directly his fault, Saliba was part of a three-man defence that conceded two goals as the Ligue 1 outfit fell to defeat.
