ARTETA: SAGNA PROVED RIGHT WITH OPINION

A lot of Arsenal fans didn't agree with Bacary Sagna when he called for patience when the club lost the first three games in the Premier League without a single goal. In his interview with William Hill, Bacary Sagna backed Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for the job despite the Spaniard leading the club to the bottom of the table with zero point and nine goals conceded in three games at the start of the new Premier League campaign.

Bacary Sagna has been proved right with his opinion on situation as ex-Arsenal teammate Arteta has turned things around and led the team to the top five after 11 games. It has taken Arteta and his players just eight games to significantly close the gap on the leading teams on the league table. With Arteta in charge, Arsenal have the longest unbeaten run in the English top flight at the moment as they have not tasted defeat in eight games.

SAGNA: MBAPPÉ SHOULD PREPARE FOR A BETTER WORLD CUP

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé was not a happy man after his country France were knocked out of the Euros some weeks ago. He was particularly not impressed with his performances at the tournament and was also partly responsible for his side's exit from the competition. In their match against Switzerland, Mbappé had a couple of chances to win the game for France but spurned those opportunities away until they had to settle for a 3-3 draw after extra time. The game had to be decided by penalties and even after being partly blamed for his missed chances during the game, he also missed a decisive spot-kick that confirmed Les Blues' exit from the Euros.

SAGNA CALLS ON MBAPPÉ AND GIROUD TO SETTLE THEIR DISPUTE

Former France international defender Bacary Sagna has called on the French country's duo Kylian Mbappé and Olivier Giroud to put their differences aside before it explodes into something more serious. Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé and Chelsea striker Giroud were involved in a major bust-up in one of their warm-up games before the commencement of their Euros campaign and the incident has continued to make waves in the media.

During the said game, it was discovered that Mbappé was notably interested in exchanging passes with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema more than he did with Giroud even though the Chelsea man came off the bench to find the back of the net. After the match, during a post-match interview, Giroud mentioned that some people in the team were not interested in establishing link-up plays with him, making reference to the on-field incident.

SAGNA: MANCHESTER CITY SHOULD SIGN KANE

The future of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is still up in the air and it continues to look like the star forward will not be playing at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium next season. In the last couple of seasons, Kane has proven to be one of the best strikers in the Premier League among current players and is even trying to chase down Alan Shearer's record as the league's highest goalscorer.

There have been talks about Kane leaving the London club, with many pundits and former players urging him to move to another club and increase his chances of winning titles. It looks like those talks have finally gotten into his head after coming out publicly last week to confess his ambitions of playing for the best clubs in the division and the desire of also wanting to win trophies.
