Everybody is frustrated at the inability of Arsenal to win a major trophy since 2005 and the exodus of important players from the Emirate. No wonder Bacary is not happy

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has revealed his frustration at a summer which saw two top players leave and his own future fail to be sorted out.

The France international, who has just entered the final two years of his contract, watched on as Robin van Persie was sold to Manchester United for £24million with Alex Song followed him out the door in a shock £15m deal to Barcelona. 

The twenty nine years old is currently working his way back to fitness from a broken leg and is one of the Gunners' most seniors players after five years in north London.

But speaking out as he has done but dampen spirits at Arsenal, who have enjoyed a steady start to a season through which they were once again expected to struggle. 

'When your two best players go, you ask yourself questions. Fans come up to me in street, and I understand the frustration. Like them I don't understand everything.
'Everyone knew Robin was leaving. But Alex? He's 24 and with three years left on his contract. I still don't understand it. He's a huge loss.'
I'm the only starting player left from 2007. In May, I watched Manchester City's parade on television and I saw Samir and Gael lift the trophy. I want that.
At the end of this season, I will have one year left on my contract. Did someone talk with me about it ? No, nobody.
