Sports Brief | William Saliba has visited Cameroon as he recovers from injury
The Arsenal defender was born to a Cameroon mother in France
Saliba has been ruled out for the rest of the season
Arsenal defender William Saliba has returned to his roots after visiting Cameroon during his injury recovery.
The France international opted to represent the country of his birth despite his mother hailing from Cameroon.
He is currently in the African country and took the opportunity to visit iconic striker Samuel Eto’o at his FECAFOOT office.
In photos shared on social media, the Arsenal star was also spotted having a good time with his family in Yaoundé as he enjoyed the local delicacies.
Saliba has been out with injury since March and his absence seems to have cost Arsenal the title after losing grip of their place at the top of the table.
