Bacary Sagna sends strong warning to Mason Mount against joining Arsenal and what to expect; What he said.
Barcay Sagna have been an Arsenal player during the time of Arteta as a player and to say he knows Arteta well is an understatement and maybe Mount should take what he is saying seriously.
Sagna, a former Arsenal player, says to The Games Cabin, (h/t Football.London), that the England international may struggle to crack the starting lineup if he signs with the North Londoners;
“I don’t see him playing ahead of any of the players in Arsenal’s starting XI. I think he would purely be an addition, and I don’t see him getting ahead of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, or Gabriel Martinelli. I believe that Martinelli has more speed and more creativity, and I don’t believe buying a player like Mason and putting him on the bench would be a good decision for the club.”
If Mount joins Arsenal, Arteta, who is an ingenious manager will have a place for him there. Coaches always know the value of their players and how to employ them in systems where they can flourish. However, the Gunners have not expressed any solid interest in buying the midfielder.
Moreover, the rivalries between the two teams will be a factor, especially considering Arsenal are doing better than us in the Premier League right now. Although, that hasn’t stopped the likes of Jorginho and David Luiz from playing for both teams.
