Sagna ruled out of Euros
Arsenal and France defender Bacary Sagna has suffered a broken leg and will miss the European Championship, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.
The right-back was stretchered off in the 33rd minute of the Gunners' home encounter with Norwich on Saturday, which ended in a 3-3 draw.
Wenger has confirmed the 29-year-old has broken his fibula and will play no further part for Arsenal this season, while he has also been ruled out of featuring for France at this summer's Euros in Poland and Ukraine.
Sagna had only recently returned to action after suffering a similar injury in a game against Tottenham last October, with his latest leg break occurring in the same area.
Arsenal boss Wenger said: "It is broken fibula, the same leg.
"He was kicked on it, it has not happened alone.
"When he was kicked, he has broken the leg.
"The guy closed him down and walked on him. I don't know if it was deliberate or not."
