Arsenal’s new signing, William Saliba has disclosed that he knew Paris Saint-Germain stikrer, Kylian Mbappe when the pair were at school, and his dad was even his coach.
William was recently signed on a five-year deal from St. Etienne but he will spend next season on loan with the Ligue 1 side.
He has now revealed that he grew up in an estate named Bondy, where Mbappe also learned to play football.
His words, “I know Kylian Mbappe,”
“He went to my primary school when we were little, and his father was my coach when I was little, too.”
“I grew up on an estate,”
“Honestly, growing up on an estate helps. You’re together with all your mates, you get to play in your neighbourhood on the local five-a-side pitches.
“You’re all together, and everyone likes football there, so honestly it’s easy. When you come from an estate, you’ve got the determination to get out of it.”
