Bacary Sagna Hits-Out At Arsenal Over Contract

Arsenal full-back also unhappy with club over sale of Alex Song.

Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has hit-out at Arsenal over their sale of Alex Song to Barcelona, while also revealing his unhappiness at their failure to speak to him about a new contract.

The Frenchman, 29, is nearing a return to fitness after breaking his leg at the end of last season and made the explosive comments to French paper l’Equipe.

After watching his side sell prize asset Robin Van Persie to Premier League rivals Manchester United over the summer which, Sagna admits, was expected, the sale of 24-year-old midfielder Song came as a shock to the Frenchman who sees his departure as a big and unnecessary loss for the Gunners.

His comments are likely to worry Arsenal fans and dismay manager Arsene Wenger, who does not need unrest in the dressing-room so early in the season after a slow start has seen them struggling without last season’s top goalscorer Van Persie leading the attack.

Meanwhile, Sagna’s revelation that his contract runs out in 2014 will further frustrate the management – who were unwilling to reveal this information – as it may now cause other clubs to come in for the talented full-back at the end of the season should his situation not change.

Sagna has made 153 appearances for Arsenal since signing in 2007.
