Former Gunners youth-team player and lifelong Gooner Johnson did not speak to Sagna afterwards and has not been in contact since.
But he believes he is blameless. Johnson said: “I don’t even remember the tackle — I’ve already forgotten all about it.
“But I honestly don’t think that I did anything wrong, despite what Arsene Wenger may have said afterwards.
“I won’t even be thinking about it.
“I will just go out and play my normal game. I don’t know what sort of reception I will get. But it won’t bother me at all. Tackling is a massive part of my game. I like a challenge and I like competitive games.
“When I go into a tackle I want to win it but I never go out with the intention of hurting anyone. When I signed for Norwich, Paul Lambert said I had a nasty side to my game and that’s true. But I’m not dirty.”
