Bacary Sagna blasted Bradley Johnson

Arsenal full back Bacary Sagna has accused Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson of breaking his leg deliberately.

The Frenchman has been ruled out of Euro 2012 with the break, his second of the season and the 29-year-old was unhappy with the 25-year-old.

“I think he did it on purpose,” Sagna told L’Equipe.

“He stepped on my leg. Play continues, I get back on my feet. And when I tried to control the ball, I felt a crack, just like the first time at Tottenham.

“He stepped right where the plate was. I think the plate pressured (the bone). It’s a neat break, just above the plate.”

The Arsenal right back said he was confident he would overcome the injury.

“That’s how it is,” he added. “It’s football. It has happened to others before me.

“I came back once, I will come back a second time. Even stronger.
