Bacary Sagna likes the cut of Mikel Arteta’s jib. He also likes other stuff, like his spirit, his smile, his fight…and although he doesn’t mention it, we can assume Bacary likes Mikel’s gloriously Lego-like hair.
He might like other stuff about the Spaniard too, but that would be pure speculation. And we don’t do that here. Oh no, no, no…we do not.
Looking back on our summer signing’s first season, here’s what Bac said to Arsenal Player:
“I think he brings stability to the team. He has very good maturity. He knows how to accelerate the game and when to keep the ball.
“He was very important in the middle of the park. He gave a different spirit to the team.
“He’s a great fighter, even in training he’s always fighting for the ball and to win. He’s always smiling and it’s great to see that when you go in the dressing-room.”
I know, I know…pretty dull stuff. But you don’t want us peddling mindless transfer guff which we all know won’t happen in a month of Super Sundays.
