New Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna has revealed his reasons for joining the club from Arsenal this summer.
“Players are here to work and to win trophies,” Sagna said.”I was watching them (City) celebrating last season and I wanted to celebrate at the same time and win trophies, and the best way to do that is to work, to wake up every day and give the maximum effort”.
The Frenchman joined Kolo Toure, Gael Glichy, Emmanuel Adebayor and Samir Nasri, who all made the switch from the Emirates Stadium to the Etihad Stadium in recent years.
Sagna is in line to make his competitive debut for City in Sunday’s Community Shield, ironically against his former club. Sagna, though, insists it is “just another game”.
