Bacary Sagna (French pronunciation: [bakaʁi saɲa]); born 14 February 1983) is a French professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Manchester City and the France national team. His former manager at Arsenal, Arsène Wenger, has described him as the best right back in the Premier League. In addition to his regular duties in the full-back position, Sagna played for Arsenal as a centre back on several occasions.
He began his career at Auxerre, before transferring to Arsenal for £7 million in 2007. In 2014, shortly after winning the FA Cup, his first trophy at the club, he declared he would not continue as an Arsenal player and subsequently moved to Manchester City when his contract expired. A full international since 2007, he was selected by France for two FIFA World Cup tournaments and one UEFA European Championship.Close
