Bacary Sagna removes Instagram post claiming Man City were playing against 12 men

It may be a new year, but Premier League footballers posting something up on social media and then hastily removing it is still around.

Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna may find himself in a bit of hot water after he posting an image on Instagram, where he claimed it was ’10 against 12′ in City’s 2-1 win over Burnley.

Fernandinho picked up his third red card this season for the Citizens after 32 minutes, and Sagna’s post is presumably aimed at referee Lee Mason.

As is the norm, a player said something controversial online, realised he could get in trouble, deleted it, but the damage has already been done.

This is the post Sagna deleted.



The post read: “10 against 12.. but still fighting and winning as a team #together #mancity”.

City fans picked up on the post, with some concerned that it may lead to a fine and maybe even a suspension.

Sagna re-posted the same image but with the caption: “still fighting and winning as a team. #together #mancity #youfreetothinkwhateveryouwant”.

Hmm, #youfreetothinkwhateveryouwant seems like a little dig as well – Sagna just can’t be tamed, can he?

No doubt he’ll be hauled in front of an FA panel and plead that that he sent it in error from his pocket in what is now known as the ‘Lescott defence’.
