Arsenal defender Saliba: I need to see St Etienne Cup final push

Arsenal defender William Saliba will be in attendance for St Etienne's French Cup final clash with PSG.

After being blocked from extending his loan at ASSE, it has left Saliba only able to watch from the stands at the Stade de France and he expressed his disappointment in an interview with L'Equipe.

"I couldn't miss this. As I am not able to play, I want to at least feel this final as much as possible, by supporting my team in the stadium," he said.

"In front of the TV, it would not be the same. It was important for me to be there, hoping to see Les Verts win.

"It will also allow me to say goodbye to my team-mates properly. Because I felt like I was a robber."
