RIP Omar Sagna

Bacary Sagna missed the weekend game with Manchester Utd due to personal reasons.

News coming from France this morning is that his older brother Omar Sagna was found dead in his bath on on Wednesday night.

Omar was just 28 and at the moment no one knows how he died but there is a post postmortem due in France to try and figure out how it happened. Bacary Sagna was told by a friend of Omar’s death and returned to France to console his family.

It is understood that Bacary has now returned to London and is training with the team ahead of the Champions league game with AC Milan.

On behalf of The Gooner Forum and all Arsenal`s fans, We would like to send our condolences out to Sagna`s family.

RIP Omar Sagna

    An excellent post, and a sentiment I’m sure all Gooners share.

  3. Gilberto says:

    Wow if this dont affect his gameplay then sagna is truely a star. I wouldnt hold it against him if he doesnt play well vs millian.

  4. josh says:

    sad loss for Bac. lets hope he can try to get it out of his head asap, because its come at such a bad time. hes sorely missed, as justin hoyte demonstrated so adeptly (or not!).

  5. JacktheHat says:

    Sad news for anyone.

    Best wished to Bac Sagna and all his family at this time.

    I am sure every gunner will be understanding of maybe an off performance on Wednesday.

    All the Best Bac

    sagna must be torn apart! i dont think he should play against milan.

  12. TH says:

    R.I.P to Omar! My condolences to the Sagna family. Has to be terrible for Le Bac. I don’t even want to say I hope he can play tomorrow night ( I wish he can but…) because I know that must be truly hard for him,he’s human after all not a machine. So take the time you need.

  13. BASSEM says:

    Innilillah wa innailayhi rajiun – My deepest condolences Bacary – Wish you and family all the best

  14. Steve says:

    I dont think Wenger should let Bac play. I remember when we played the other Milan team the night Sol’s dad died. He was all over the place, understandably and we got beat 3-0. We can play Toure right back and ease Bac back.

  15. GoonerDez says:

    RIP, God rest his soul.

  16. sam says:

    Tks for being the only site that explained Sagna’s absence against Manure. Keep up the good work! Yes, we wont hold it against him if he had a bad game against Milan. He already shows courage and committment by returning to the squad. 50% from him is very much better than Hoyte or Eboue as RB.

  17. gunner3 says:

    I hope he can put this behind him and play as well as he has been doing.

  18. JM Gautier says:

    Mr. Sagna,
    Vous etes un champion et malgre votre douleur, vous parviendrez a dominer cette tragedie. Vous montrerez que vous etes d’acier dans la competition tout en etant emotionel dans votre vie privee

    Ina lillahi Wainna Ileihi Rajiuun.
    I know how it really feels to have brother alking and joking with you one day and taken away from you the next.

    I hope you are stronger than me. I was a mess for a while and did want to be alone as would cry and think of him. Hearing this sad news reminds me of that period and I would imagine that he would be better to play football as it would somehow gives something to occupy your mind during the periods.

    Yeah well done Josh, don’t think of him, think about a football match you tosser!

  34. Tony says:

    Harry you aint much better using language like that on a page where gooners are expressing condolences for the Sagna’s.
    Some people deal with situations like this differently, Bacary may have the game of his life in dedication to his brother.
    R.I.P Omar Sagna

  35. G4E says:

    Nice one Mr. Josh

    If Sagna plays tomorrow, I wish him all the best to do well and I think he will. To comeback so soon after his big personal loss shows just how good and committed of a player he is for our club this season.

    My condolence Sagna, you will be in our thoughts…and hopefully will be in the attending fans chants of support today.


  36. TopGooner says:

    Mr. Sagna, please do not allow your brother death to play on your mind. We expect you to perform

  41. Mod says:

    Sagna has been a revelation for arsenal this season and as an Arsenal fan i think he should be rested for tonights game and given the proper time to Grieve. I dont think anyone would blame him if he pulled out of tonights game

    I offer my condolances to Sagna’s family and wish him all the best over this difficult period.

  42. atek says:
