Arsenal boss Wenger: Sagna best right-back in league

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rates Bacary Sagna as the best right-back in the league.

Sagna has been at his best since returning from long injury lay-off and Wenger says there is nobody better in his position.

"I think so, personally, and I believe that everybody at the Club would share this opinion," he told Arsenal Player. "Many people outside the Club have this opinion as well.

"I must say with the right back position I have been quite lucky because we had Lee Dixon when I arrived, then Lauren, and Sagna afterwards. They have all been real winners and extremely consistent. On that front we were very lucky.

"They are all real battlers, they are ready to die to win. All these players have been inspirational for everybody because their physical level, commitment, intelligence and desire to win is all there."
