Arsenal fullback Carl Jenkinson is full of praise for Bacary Sagna as he fills in at centre-back.

Jenkinson rates the France international highly and believes his performances bode well for the future.

“Even during pre-season and at the start of the season, whenever he's played there he's been excellent,” he told arsenal.com. “I enjoy playing with him when he is playing as the right-sided centre back.

“He's good in the air, he’s quick - that's nice to have - and, all-round, he's a very capable defender. But everyone who's played centre half this season has done very well.

“Personally, I think Sagna has impressed massively in that position when he's played there. He's obviously a great right back as well.”
