Arsenal sign Taribo West look-alike

Arsenal have signed Auxerre defender Bacary Sagna for a fee rumored to be 6m pounds. The defender looks distinctly like former Nigerian international Taribo West with his flamboyant hair braiding. The 24 year old joins Arsenal after very recently breaking into the senior French international side although has not seen playing time to get his first cap.

He’d previous been capped at the U-21 level, and has been very highly rated for both his international and club performances. Sagna plays at right-back, but can also play other defensive positions as well as midfield.

The new signing has been given the number three shirt, the number which had belonged to Ashley Cole. Sagna has featured regularly for Auxerre for the last three years and won the French Cup in 2005.

Someone will be upset if Arsene doesn’t sign a new deal:

"Arsene Wenger is a major reason why I have signed for Arsenal. He is an excellent manager with a fantastic record and I am really looking forward to working with him." -Sagna

PS: I was hoping a Gunner fan could help me. I am looking for a video of a Kanu goal from a number of years back where he scored by faking out the keeper with his body and letting the ball roll into the net untouched. I wanted to add it to my greates goals series. Does anyone recall this goal? Know when and who it was against? Know of a video of it? Would really appreciate it. Leave any info in the comments, my thanks!
