Former Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna has launched an attack to the Arsenal faithful naming him “Greedy” because of his imminent move to Manchester City. Information Nigeria understands.
The French defender believes he’s not joining the Citizens because of financial reasons.
“I’m going to clear everything up because I keep reading that I did it for money and I’m greedy,” said Sagna following France’s World Cup draw with Ecuador at the Maracana.
“What I want to say is I stayed with Arsenal with the same contract since 2008 and I never asked for more money.
“For people who think it’s for money, it’s not. I just wanted to change. I needed a boost in my career and I think it was about time.”
“It was not an easy time because we were still involved in the FA Cup and it was hard to stay focused,” he added.
“I stayed focused on my team because I have a lot of respect for Arsenal.
“I believe Arsenal are a great team. I believe we have great quality and [am happy that] we won a trophy finally. It’s not even about that because Arsenal have quality.
“It’s just that, personally, I wanted a boost. I needed to start from the bottom again.”
Bacary Sagna is on international duty for the France National team at the Fifa World Cup in Brazil, and his country is set to battle Nigeria on Monday in the next round.
