Arshavin to miss 2-3 weeks
Arsenal’s injury woes continues with Andrey Arshavin now the latest concern.
The Gunners already had injury to skipper Cesc Fabregas to ponder while Wenger confirmed to French TV that William Gallas – withdrawn early on Wednesday – was likely to miss the rest of the season.
But the growing list of Arsenal’s stricken men will not end there as Andrey Arshavin has revealed he may face nearly a month on the sidelines.
The Russian was forced off after just 27 minutes of action against Barcelona and Wenger confirmed he suffered a calf strain.
“He is the same (as Gallas), he has done his calf.” Wenger said
And Arshavin has ruled out himself for the next couple of weeks following what he revealed was not a recurrence of an old injury.
“I may not be able to enter the field in the next two to three weeks.” the 28-year-old said after the match.
“No, this is a new injury I have suffered.” he added.
