'It's a state of mind, it's a way of living': Thierry Henry on what separates Saliba from other defenders

Speaking about France's squad, Thierry Henry said: "You go to any town in and around Paris and you will find players like that.

"It's a state of mind, it's a way of living. When you're in a one-vs-one with William Saliba, you're like, 'Okay, you're not going anywhere, big man!'

"I think this season he was, for me, the best centre-back in the Premier League."

France, one of the tournament's favourites, kick off their Euro 2024 campaign on Monday night with a Group D clash against Austria.

Saliba, however, is not guaranteed to start despite his stellar season with Arsenal as head coach Didier Deschamps has an issue with the defender.
