Sagna was forced to withdraw from the France squad for games against Spain and Luxembourg and was also missing during City’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea last night.
However, as the 34-year-old progressed through the rehabilitation process this afternoon, he was given a fantastic reception by a bunch of school kids.
The ex-Arsenal right back uploaded this video to his official Instagram account, claiming the adoration he received from the young fans made him feel like boxing legend Muhammad Ali:
City’s loss to at Stamford Bridge last night leaves Pep Guardiola’s side in fourth place in the Premier League table.
However, fifth placed Arsenal have a game in hand over City and could close the gap on the Champions League places with a win over Crystal Palace on Monday night.
