Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has accused Norwich’s Bradley Johnson of intentionally stamping on his leg, which led to a second break in a year for the Frenchman
Sagna was stretchered off on Saturday during the sides’ 3-3 draw after Johnson stood on his right fibula, fracturing it for a second time. Sagna first broke this bone in October last year, during a game against Tottenham.
Sagna, who will now miss France’s Euro 2012 campaign, said accusingly: “(Johnson) trod on my leg. I think he did it on purpose.
“The play carried on and I got up. When I went to control the ball, I felt a crack just like the first time against Tottenham.
“He trod on me in the same place as the previous fracture. That’s what caused the pressure. It cut in two.
“I’ve come back before and I’ll come back even stronger a second time.”
Sagna will now miss Arsenal’s final game of the season away to West Brom, with victory for the north London club set to secure the team Champions League football next season.
