Petit: Arsenal should give Guendouzi and Saliba new chance

Arsenal hero Emmanuel Petit says he would like the Gunners to give Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba a new chance.

The pair are on-loan with Olympique Marseille.

In his interview with, Petit said: "Saliba made some comments on French TV recently where he said he wasn't ruling out a return to Arsenal next season.

"He added that he didn't mind not playing every single game, he just wanted to be in the rotation.

"He has made a huge impact at Marseille as well, and the fact that both he and Guendouzi have won their first caps for the French national team tells you a lot about how they've been playing.

"The fans of Marseille love Matteo Guendouzi. They like his character, personality and his play.

"Meanwhile, Saliba has been a rock in the defence for them and he is not the same player that left Arsenal. He is different, he has grown up and he is more confident.

"I would like to see Guendouzi and Saliba come back to Arsenal, but the question needs to be asked to them on if they are happy to go back."
