Arsenal’s trophy drought embarrassing, admits Bacary Sagna
Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna is desperate to help the Gunners win silverware ahead of their clash at Stoke City
Bacary Sagna has branded Arsenal’s trophy drought “embarrassing” ahead of their clash against Stoke City on Saturday.
The France international is bidding to win his first piece of silverware as a Gunners player, with the north London side a point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.
It’s our ambition to stay top of the league
And Sagna, who moved to The Emirates from Auxurre in 2006, spoke of his desire to help Arsenal secure a long-awaited top-flight crown this season.
“It would be my first trophy,” Sagna told the Daily Mirror. “I’ve been here for seven years and we haven’t won anything so it’s a bit embarrassing for the club, the fans and ourselves as well.
“As a player you want to be successful, show you have the quality and when you don’t win you always wonder what’s happening. I know we have the quality to do it. Every day I think about it.
“It’s our ambition to stay top of the league. We have a quality team to be successful at the end of the season but we must stay focused.”
Sagna has scored five goals and 22 assists in 269 Premier League appearances since moving to the north London side.
