The Gunners revealed what is termed “unpleasant” news against the expectation of the fans. Ahead of their next EPL match, Wenger revealed that although Tomas Rosicky is “progressing nicely”, he is still “far away” from regaining full fitness as per the Gunners official website.
The 34-year-old Czech intrernational has never completed a season unscathed at Arsenal. This season is painting a similar picture with the London Evening standard recently reporting that the midfielder will be sidelined for no less than three months after he had a corrective knee surgery.
Sadly Rosicky came off the bench 10times in his 15 appearances throughout last season.
Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere had accidentally clashed with his team-mate Gabriel Paulista during a training session. He injured his fibula, but is understood to have started light training.
When faced with the press ahead of the Gunner’s clash with their arch rivals Liverpool next Monday, Wenger revealed the latest regarding his players injury.
“Rosicky is progressive nicely but he is far away. Wilshere should be the first back from those players, he is making a good progress.” Wenger said.
This season, Arsenal employed the services of two fitness coaches, James Haycock and Barry Solan, they were saddled with the responsibility of putting an end to Arsenal’s injury woes.
James Haycock was head of medicals at Huddersfield Town and he has joined Arsenal’s physio team, while Barry Solan, who was part of the German world cup winning team, is a conditioning coach. Hopefully, we might see a significant reduction in player’s injury at the Emirates.
