Wenger: Sagna loves Arsenal and will not leave

The Frenchman has insisted the defender, who recently expressed his unhappiness with the north London club's transfer policy, still wishes to remain at the Emirates Stadium
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted defender Bacary Sagna remains committed to the club.

The French full-back recently criticised the north London club's transfer policy following the sale of last season's Premier League top goalscorer Robin van Persie to rivals Manchester United.

However, the 62-year-old has expressed his belief that the former Auxerre man has no desire to leave the Emirates Stadium.

"Bacary loves the club and I think he will stay here," he told the club's official website.

"Bacary's interview doesn't reflect the love he has for this club. He has always given full commitment."

The 29-year-old joined the Gunners in 2007 following an £8.8 million move from Ligue 1.

The France international missed this summer's European Championship after sustaining a broken leg in a Premier League clash with Norwich in May.
