It is amazing to be back, says Sagna after appearance for Arsenal Under-21s

The French defender is happy to be playing again after making his comeback in the youth team's win against Reading after playing 61 minutes of football before being substituted

The story is too old to be commented.

how did he get in the under 21's if he's 29!? :L

Few people take U21-18 games seriously, clubs sometimes use those games to play players back from injuries, in this case Sagna to get them fit

you're allowed to field a max of three players over the age limit.

I never knew that, but it doesn't make any sense.

No other sports does this. I Think!

It's presumably done to have the kids play alongside that extra bit of experience, which can only help them to be honest. Terry Burton (Arsenal U-21 coach) mentioned as much after our side's 2-0 win over Reading.
