Bacary Sagna lay on the side of the WHL turf in pain; injured in combat. The mindless fans of the enemy rained deritiion and spittle on him as he exited on a stretcher.
On 26th February Arsenal trailed 0-2 to the enemy. Come the 40th minute it was Sagna who girded his loins and met Arteta's cross with a thunderous header. Grabbing the ball from the enemy's net and running to the half way line to place it firmly on the centre spot Bacary showed those fans of the enemy that their taunts and venom from the previous fixture would not stand.
Sagna led the fight back and his return to the right back position has coincided with Theo's upsurge in form (liberating him perhaps), his return in defence has coincided with more stability.
Bacary Sagna is all Arsenal, a real player and one whom we missed greatly and can now see how much his absence cost us.
