France right back suffered two broken legs last year.
Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has revealed that he is concerned about his performances for the North Londoners this season.
The France international endured an injury-ravaged campaign last time, suffering two broken legs before finally making his Gunners comeback last October.
However, another subsequent foot injury forced the 30-year-old back on to the sidelines and Sagna admits that his form has suffered as a result.
“I’ve not been at my best, I am going to be honest – I am not very happy with myself,” Sagna told the Sun.
“But this is football. This is a part where I need to get better and work more on my form. It has been a long time I’ve been working – since last summer, I didn’t really have a pre-season.
“I need to breathe a bit but, at a high level, you don’t have time to breathe because you have a game every few days and you have to keep going. I am looking forward to coming back to my best.
“You don’t focus 100 per cent on the pitch – you miss something to push forward.
“You need somebody else to defend even better. When you are not at your best at this level, you feel it straight away on the pitch.
“You need a bit of everything to turn it around. When you don’t perform as you used to, when you have been injured for so long, you need your confidence back and I was a bit low recently.
“I am just looking forward. I am a professional so I know it can happen but not for too long because everyone is waiting for me to perform well and I am looking forward to do it.”
