Photos: Player let go by Arsene Wenger pictured with Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal squad at training
Sagna was let go in 2013 during the reign of Arsene Wenger, and played 83 times in the same Arsenal team as Arteta before that, as per Transfermarkt.
Arteta’s squad are training in Dubai ahead of the return of the Premier League later this month soon after the end of the World Cup.
And Sagna was a guest on the side of the pitch after a session, meeting the likes of Arteta, Edu, Marquinhos, Rob Holding, Sambi, Mo Elneny, Cedric and Gabriel.
Sagna pops in after Arsenal training
The Gunners are set to play AC Milan at 2pm this afternoon as their preparations to get back into serious action continue.
Ben White, Thomas Partey and Matt Turner were back in training after their return from the World Cup, as Arteta’s squad starts to look stronger.
Arteta guided his team into a five-point lead at the top of the table before the unprecedented mid-season break and the challenge is to keep that going now.
Arsenal face Juventus this weekend also, in their final friendly before they get back into the Premier League hustle and bussle.
Their first game after Christmas is a London derby at home to West Ham to kick off the traditionally frantic festive fixture programme.
Last week, they beat Lyon 3-0 and then won a penalty shootout after the game as well and will be looking to keep that momentum going today.
