Call For Action Against Dangerous Tackles

Aaron Ramsay

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsay has just now healed from having his leg broken from a bad tackle in time to play for England in their upcoming international match against Wales this weekend.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has called for action against dangerous tackles.

He is angry after Arsenal’s Samir Nasri “almost had his leg cut off” by Paul Scholes in 2-0 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

Sagna has seen two of his Gunners teammates, Aaron Ramsey and Eduardo, end up with broken legs due to reckless, heavy tackles.

Samir Nasri recently suffered from a reckless, high challenge by Paul Scholes in the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United.

“We’ve had two broken legs,” said Sagna. “We went to Manchester and Samir got his leg ripped off again.

“They always wait until there is a major incident to make a decision, and then it’s too late.”

“He almost had his leg cut off. “If he breaks his leg what shall we say? It’s too late.

“The problem is you can’t have a discussion with them – you can’t have a debate.”

Arsenal’s has been eliminated from three major competitions.

“When you make all those efforts, you reach the League Cup final, which is at Wembley, and then we soil ourselves, that’s not normal,” he said.

“We were beaten in every domain, they won the most tackles, and honestly they deserved it.”

Sagna hopes Arsenal will bring a Premiership trophy to Emirates Stadium this season as they sit five points behind Manchester United in the title race, but with a game in hand.

“We know we can do it,” he said. “To answer the critics, you have to win. For the moment we have not done this. So we can’t answer back.”
