Sagna ‘hopeful’ of returning for new season

Arsenal hope to have injured defender Bacary Sagna back sooner than originally expected following his leg break at the beginning of May.

The 29-year-old was carried from the field after falling to the ground unchallenged in Arenal’s 3-3 draw with Norwich at the Emirates.

Sagna is currently in Dubai recuperating from his injury, with friends close to the player revealing that the Frenchman is in ‘high spirits’ after being given a better-than-expected prognosis.

“It is making progress and everyone at the club is helping me through. I’m out of plaster, been in a boot and will see the specialist before I go on holiday.

“I was devastated to miss the Euros – especially missing the England game – but I will be back for Arsenal. I hope to be back for the start of the season but I don’t want to set a timescale.”

    Can’t help thinking that Jenkinson really needs a season on loan to develop his defensive game and develop a bit more pace and strength. I think we should sign cover for Bacary.
