Congratulating a former teammate on his success is normally a fairly innocuous event for professional footballers. Not so for Bacary Sagna, whose public response to Samir Nasri and Manchester City ruffled the feathers of Arsenal fans Sunday.

Nasri posted this picture on Instagram, celebrating Manchester City's title:

Sagna, who has played at Arsenal for seven years without winning a single trophy, apparently commented "lucky you.." from his account.

While the comment no longer exists on the original Instagram post, any bitterness between Sagna and Arsenal fans would likely be abated by a win in the FA Cup final this weekend.
