Former Arsenal and Manchester City star Bacary Sagna has indicated that the treatment of Arsene Wenger from the Gunners supporters eventually urged him to part ways with the north London side. The French tactician announced the decision to re-sign from the head coach role after 22 years at the helm last season and Sagna believes the criticism from the faithful made the decision inevitable.
In a report covered by Sport Witness, Sagna said: “I was expecting it. Looking at how the fans had turned on him, what came next was logical. I don’t think he could have continued in that context. It’s quite a shame. Leaving like that after all he brought to the club. He changed the image of English football. Not everything can always go perfectly. He had good moments with Arsenal. Always tried to keep a certain ethic in order to play and help develop youngsters, especially English. He’s criticised when he’s trying to help football.”
