PHOTO: Arsenal hero pictured in Manchester City colours for the first time

Bacary Sagna has been pictured in Manchester City colours for the first time.

Arsenal FA Cup winner Bacary Sagna is now officially a Manchester City player, and has finally joined up with his new club after the World Cup break.

The right-back had been pictured on holiday in Miami in recent weeks, but has now returned to England to begin his new adventure in Manchester.

Sagna had been a reliable performer for Arsenal since signing from Auxerre in 2007, but had seemingly made his mind up to move on before winning his first trophy with the club in May.

Arsenal have replaced him with his French international competitor Mathieu Debuchy, while at City Sagna faces a real challenge.

To become a regular he must dislodge arguably the best right-back in the league in Pablo Zabaleta, and may find himself utilised at centre-back as he did for Arsenal on an occasional basis.

He joins former Arsenal teammates Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri at the Premier League champions, who are currently joint favourites to win this coming season's title.
