Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna has told French sports paper L’Equpe that he is still angry over his second leg break in a year which he received after a challenge by Norwich’s Bradley Johnson.
Called up to represent France for the first time since he broke his leg against Tottenham in 2011, Sagna said of the call up
“I couldn’t speak I was so emotional. In my head, I was thinking back to a year ago, and the games against Tottenham and then Norwich. I went over everything that had happened and said to myself: ‘Finally some good news’.
“When I arrived at Clairefontaine, I took pictures of the bed, of my kit. I need souvenirs of my comeback. When I received my packet of kit, I opened it straightaway and looked at the new stuff. It’s nice too.”
He went on to add about the second leg break
“At that moment, I felt hate towards destiny. I was also annoyed with my opponent, because he didn’t have to overdo things. For me, it was deliberate. I’m still angry with him today. You can injure someone, but after that… I will never forget it.”
At the time, Sagna of the second leg break, Sagna said
“He trod on me in the same place as the previous fracture was. That’s what caused the pressure. It cut in two. Now I’ll start all over again. I’ve come back before and I’ll come back even stronger a second time.”
