Former Arsenal star Bacary Sagna may be hoping a new look brings around a change in fortunes at Manchester City.

The Frenchman has taken to Instagram to show off his new look, having shaved the braided hair with which he had become associated.

The 2014 FA Cup winner is currently on a summer break, after his City side finished in second place in the Premier League last season.

That was four points above former club Arsenal, but the Gunners lifted silverware by winning a second successive FA Cup, this time without him.

The 32-year-old made only eight Premier League starts this past season, struggling to dislodge Pablo Zabaleta from the Manchester City starting line-up.

Arsenal meanwhile got on just fine without him at right-back, with Hector Bellerin breaking through and keeping injury-hit star Mathieu Debuchy out of the line-up.

A fresh start at City is what Sagna needs ahead of next season, and if a new haircut helps him focus his mentality accordingly then the best of luck to him.
