Bacary Sagna claims he’s a fan of rappers Rick Ross and 50 cent
One of the premier features of Red London is the ability to bring you those scarce but noteworthy talking points about the Gunners.
And revealing his favourite choice of music today is the almost forgotten Arsenal man Bacary Sagna who has been out of action since the north London derby in October.
The French defender was spotted at the ‘GB2B Cup Promo’ this week for a fundraising football tournament along with the likes of fellow football stars Jermaine Defoe and Ashley Young.
Sagna was pulled aside the pitch for a relaxed interview about several topics and when asked which kind of music he prefers to listen to when riding the Arsenal bus ahead of matches, the 28-year-old revealed he was a fan of Hip-Hop.
“I am more into American rap. The artists which I like to listen to are 50 cent and Rick Ross.” Sagna said
But do not bother asking Bacary to ‘spit’ a few rhymes for you when you come across him because the former Auxere man admits his quality in that area does not match the one he displays at right-back for Arsenal.
“I do rap sometimes but I am not good at rapping because my English is not good” he chuckled.
Ever since being stretched off at White Hart Lane, Sagna has been sorely missed by an Arsenal defence which has seen an astonishing six players all tried and tested in his full-back position without making any convincing impression.
Carl Jenskinson, Laurent Koscielny, Francis Coquelin, Johan Djourou, and now Yennaris have all been deployed at right-back during Sagna’s lay-off, and with the news that the Frenchman is back in training for Arsenal, Wenger will be much relieved.
