Sagna backs Wenger, confident on Fabregas
Bacary Sagna has insisted Arsenal's players are "200 per cent" behind manager Arsene Wenger. The 28-year-old Frenchman is also confident captain Cesc Fabregas will not quit the Gunners this summer amid speculation the midfielder may have played his last game for the club.
Wenger is under more pressure than ever at the Emirates Stadium following a sixth successive season without a trophy. Arsenal also slipped to fourth in the Premier League last night, after Manchester City beat Stoke City ahead of Sunday's final round of the campaign.
Wenger, who has been in charge for almost 15 years, has been criticised for failing to spend big in recent times, but right-back Sagna told Sky Sports News: "Everyone is 200 per cent behind him.
"I think he is the right guy. He made a lot for the team, for the players and for the club as well. So we just want to keep working hard and give the maximum."
Sagna also expects Fabragas to start next season at Arsenal. The Spain international, who is set to miss the forthcoming match at Fulham with the thigh injury which has kept him out so far this month, has long been linked with a return to Barcelona.
But asked if he felt his team-mate would still be at Emirates Stadium next term, Sagna responded: "Of course. He is under contract with the team. He is still our captain.
"Unfortunately, he was injured, but he will be back soon. We need him badly because he is a good player, he is very talented and everyone knows what he can bring to the team. So I am looking forward to playing with him next year."
