This is a major reason I’m not as upset by the Luiz deal as I could be. Multiple young players, like Saka and Guendouzi, have gone on record praising him for how much he’s helped them.
Saliba is coming in with a lot of pressure from fans, the press, and neutral viewers. He’ll need someone by his side that can keep him focused on just doing his best and not being overwhelmed. When you look at our current batch of CB’s, I don’t see anyone else stepping up to “mentor” Saliba in the same way I can with David.
