Arsenal loanee William Saliba ‘faces investigation by the French FA’ over Snapchat video of a naked team-mate masturbating which bosses ‘consider harmful to the image of football’

Arsenal defender William Saliba could face a probe over a leaked Snapchat video featuring a naked team-mate masturbating.

The Frenchman, who is currently on loan at Ligue 1 side Nice, has come under fire after the release of the clip, which emerged overnight but is believed to date back three years ago. 

It shows the youngster smiling before panning the camera round to show a fellow player lying next to him who is undressed.

The Frenchman has endured a tough season after being left out of Arsenal’s squad this season

Now Saliba could find himself in hot water with the French Football Federation, according to RMC Sport, which claims an investigation is now underway. 

The FFF considers the video harmful to the image of France’s governing body and football as a whole, the report adds.

Sportsmail has approached Arsenal for comment. 

It has been a difficult season for Saliba – who found himself cast out of Arsenal’s squad this term, with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta leaving him out of his Premier League and Europa League squads, stressing that the player lacks first team experience.

He has been vocal about his frustrations with a lack of game time at the Emirates and joked he was ‘locked up’ in north London in December after being prevented from playing any competitive games for the club. 

On Tuesday he took a swipe at the Spanish boss for ‘judging him on two-and-a-half games’ before deciding he wasn’t in his plans for the season. He added he felt much happier in France because he feels ‘part of a team’.

‘It is clear that so much has changed in the last year,’ he told RMC’s ‘Top of the Foot’ show. ‘When I saw that the coach changed, a lot changed for me too. In this year there has been a lot of change. He judged me on two-and-a-half matches. I would have liked for him to play me more. But he told me I wasn’t ready.

‘I was waiting for him to give me a chance, but football is like that. When I initially came to Arsenal the league looked very good so I showed up to training and wanted to train on my own to show the coach I was ready. 

‘I am happy now, I want to play for Nice. The idea when you’re part of a team is a better feeling for me.’
