Bacary Sagna is enjoying a preseason stint at centre-half with Arsenal.

Although primarily a right-back, Sagna is pleased to just be playing a part in Arsenal's pre-season campaign after missing out last year through injury.

"Playing at centre back started last season. Laurent Koscielny was injured at Sunderland and the coach came to me asking if I wanted to play centre-back because we had no cover.

"I just went for it and tried to adapt as quickly as possible.

"On the pitch everything is different but it's okay for me. It's different but I love learning.

"I see myself as a right back but if I have to cover sometimes or play centre-back, I will do it for the club, my team and myself as well."
