Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has heaped praise on defender William Saliba, declaring him “the best centre-back in the league” for his outstanding performances during the 2023/24 season.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Henry highlighted Saliba’s dominance and intimidating presence: “I think this year, he was, for me, the best centre-back in the league. When you’re in a one-vs-one with him, you’re like, ‘Okay, you’re not going anywhere, big man’.”

Saliba, who spent the 2022/23 season on loan at Marseille, returned to Arsenal a few years back and instantly solidified his place as a key figure in Mikel Arteta’s defense. He played every minute of Arsenal’s Premier League campaign, contributing significantly to the team’s impressive defensive record. His strong performances earned his a Golden Glove award for Arsenal’s goalkeeper David Raya, further highlighting his impact on the team’s success.

Henry’s endorsement speaks volumes about Saliba’s rise to prominence. As one of the Premier League’s most respected figures, Henry’s acknowledgment of Saliba’s exceptional abilities is a testament to the young defender’s impressive development.

Saliba’s performances throughout the season have earned him widespread acclaim, and his dominant displays have made him a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. With Henry’s high praise and his impressive performances, Saliba appears destined for a bright future at Arsenal.

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
