Arsène Wenger says he wasn’t surprised by Bacary Sagna’s competent performance at centre half against Sunderland.
Wenger was impressed by the defender’s display, and is happy to have inherited another option at the back.
“I always thought he could play there one day,” he told Arsenal Player.
“We pushed him in this position in training. What he showed in training was encouraging. He had no preparation. He was told 10 minutes before the start of the game and he dealt very well with that situation, so that’s very positive.”
