Arsenal trophy drought ‘embarrassing’, says Sagna
Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna has described the club’s failure to win a trophy since 2005 as ‘embarrassing’, but he believes that the current squad has the quality to end that drought, reports Goal.com.
Currently second in the Premier League and having made it to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, Arsenal are in the running to end their nine-year wait for major silverware, and Sagna, who joined from Auxerre in the summer of 2007, is desperate to win his first trophy of his time at the Emirates Stadium.
The French international said: “It would be my first trophy. I've been here for seven years and we haven't won anything so it's a bit embarrassing for the club, the fans and ourselves as well.
“As a player you want to be successful, show you have quality and when you don't win you always wonder what's happening. But it makes me even more hungry to do it."
And Sagna believes that the current Arsenal team have the necessary quality to win their first Premier League title since 2004, when the Gunners went through the entire season unbeaten. He added: “I know we have the quality to do it. Every day I think about it, every day I come to training and make myself better and hope we can win something.
“It's our ambition is to stay top of the league. We have a quality team to be successful at the end of the season but we must stay focused. But we have to learn from what happened in the past, everyone is ready to fight and show how much we want it.”
