Arsenal News: Bacary Sagna Can Leave The Club If He Is Unhappy Claims Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Bacary Sagna will have to leave the club if he is not happy. Sagna had earlier questioned the club's transfer policy in order to hold the club's key players.

The France International told to French reporters that he is not happy that the club was unable to hold Robin Van Persie and Alex Song during the summer transfer window. Wenger has taken this incident very seriously and also spoken personally to Sagna about his remarks.

Speaking about Arsenal players and transfer policies, Wenger said "I believe any player or any employee always had to defend the company he works for and if he is not completely happy with it then he has to go somewhere else. That is basically what I think. That is what I say to everybody."

"With Sagna, we want to extend his contract. He is 29, so his contract finishes when he is 31. So of course we can't give him five years" Wenger said while speaking about Sagna.

Wenger is confident about club's policy which has been scrutinized in the past couple of years. However, the Arsenal manager is confident that things will change.
