Man City fullback Sagna notices Arsenal backlash on social media

Manchester City fullback Bacary Sagna says he can handle abuse from his former Arsenal fans.

Sagna left the Gunners for City earlier this summer.

"It won't hurt me," he said. "I'm ready to expect anything now.

"It's not easy to read some comments on social networks. I know it's only a small minority and not all the Arsenal fans, but it's still not easy to read it because I feel I gave everything.

"If I was the first one then okay, but I don't know what to think. Every time a player leaves they seem to get abuse. There are so many on social networks but that doesn't represent the whole Arsenal family.

"Of course, I had a great moment with Arsenal. That will stay with me for the rest of my life, but my team is City now, it is not Arsenal.

"To me, I made the right choice and I'm very happy to be here, no matter what they think. I'm not the first one to leave their club and I won't be the last one.

"I'm looking at my personal life now and I want to fight, get in the team and give the maximum. I don't look at the negatives."
