Bacary Sagna happy to have swapped Arsenal for Manchester City

Bacary Sagna insists he made the right choice to leave Arsenal.

Bacary Sagna has not had the instant success he would have liked after swapping Arsenal for Manchester City.

The Frenchman is currently looking up from fourth to second at the Gunners, with City soon to be classed as defending champions no longer.

On a personal level it has been dismal too. As warned by some in advance of the, switch Sagna has been unable to dislodge Pablo Zabaleta from the City starting line-up on a regular basis, despite the Argentine being below his usual high standards this season.

At Arsenal, Arsene Wenger is not short of options in his old position at right-back. Mathieu Debuchy and Hector Bellerin are two strong options, while Calum Chambers and on loan Carl Jenkinson are also options long term.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Sagna has revealed he is still pleased he made the switch, despite hearing opinions suggesting otherwise.

He said: "I see a lot of comments from fans saying I should have stayed at Arsenal but if I had to do it again, if I had to come back and sign for City, I would have done it again.

"When I signed I just wanted to come, give the maximum, and give my best for the club then after, it’s life, no?"

Sagna left Arsenal on a high note having finally won a trophy, the 2014 FA Cup, but he would probably not have imagined this season it is City who will be left with no silverware, and Arsenal are odds on to retain the honour heading into this season's final.

The 32-year-old has played in only nine Premier League games this season, of which City have won four, drawn three and lost two.
