Sagna left Arsenal ‘to boost career’

Bacary Sagna has revealed that he left Arsenal in the summer to join Manchester City in order to boost his career, despite no longer being assured of a regular starting place, Sky Sports is reporting.

The Frenchman spent seven years at the Emirates Stadium before moving on in the summer following the Gunners’ FA Cup triumph in May. He was first-choice right-back throughout his time with Arsenal, but will face significant competition from Pablo Zabaleta at Man City.


He made his first Premier League start for the champions in Saturday’s surprise home defeat to Stoke City, and although he says he was aware of the added competition before making the move, Sagna believes it was the right move for his career. "I am 31 and this was the right time for me to leave Arsenal. I wanted to see somewhere new, and to boost my career,’ he said.


"But I am now part of a much deeper squad at City, where it's even harder for me to win a first-team place. It is fair to say that could pose a risk to my place in the France side. But I'm not taking that into consideration. I feel more powerful than ever.


"It is what I was looking for. I needed it in order to go the extra mile. Arsenal are, and remain, a quality side. But I can understand their fans feeling frustrated when they see players moving to other clubs."

Don't think he's played a full game yet, good move, of course it wasn't about the money, honest it wasn't.
