Arsenal defender Saliba: First Sampaoli conversation convinced me about Marseille

Arsenal defender William Saliba admits he's loved this season on-loan with Olympique Marseille.

Saliba is on a straight loan at OM and says a first conversation with coach Jorge Sampaoli was enough to convince him.

The France international said: "When a big club like Marseille comes to get you, there are not many words to seduce you. Afterwards, when the coach talks to you, you want to come even more.

"He told me he was expecting me, so it was done pretty quickly.

"He plugged me in by telling me that I was going to play in front of 60,000 people, that the supporters were also waiting for me."
