Wenger gives update on Alex Song

Alex Song is struggling to stay on his feet at the moment according to Arsene Wenger.

The Cameroonian limped off in pain as Arsenal trailed at half-time against Everton and had to be replaced by Abou Diaby.

But while the Gunners managed to turn their fortunes later on Tuesday night, Song failed to recover from his injury and could now face a spell on the sidelines.

If the 23-year-old is indeed ruled out for Saturday’s visit to Newcastle, Arsene Wenger may rue a sudden decrease in his squad’s options after already losing Nasri and Denilson to injuries on Sunday while Vela and Ramsey have been sent out on loan.

The knock Song was believed to have sustained was initially reported as a thigh problem but after the match, Wenger was unable to give a clear diagnosis on the midfielder’s injury and the Frenchman hardly gave any positive news on the player’s current condition.

“He cannot walk. I don’t know what he has got. He was kicked, I think it was by Koscielny, he knocks out everybody in our team. So we have to see how he responds to that in the next days, but he cannot walk at the moment.” Wenger said.

  1. Is a bit of a shame he did not bring in anther body, as we all knew we will get more injuries.

    We could always bring back Lansbury, he has been awsome this year, he is not the most talented of players but has fighting qualities which make him better than his skill level.

    On a lighter note, that photo shows the two most stupid hair styles in the prem.

  2. I thought Squillaci was suspended for the 1 game?

    As for Song’s injury. I hope its just a dead leg or something. lansbury should indeed be recalled if its more than that. While Diaby coming back from injury can step in for Alex too.

    1. I don’t really mind Squillaci’s absence (if it wasn’t for the sake of our depth) since it’s a good omen which has brought our attention to the quality of Koscielny and Djourou.

      Squillaci is indeed a liability if you consider the fact that he was the one playing with Koscielny in ALL our five league defeats this season.

      Indeed, we are undefeated this season when Kos/Djou are the CBs and if you didn’t know, Saha’s goal today only ended an impressive run of 4 straight league cleansheets which Koscielny and Djourou had kept.

      Also, consider the fact that the last decisive effort Squillaci made in an Arsenal shirt before Sunday’s off show was heading the ball into his own net during the 2-2 draw at Wigan.

      Clear liability.

  3. Sloppy writing. Anyone who knows football would not have said that Squillachi was suspended for 2 more games. A professional foul is only a 1 match suspension.

  4. Squillaci is suspended for one game. Last man fouls are one match bans. It seriously takes 2 mins to find that out.

  5. “…I think it was by Koscielny, he knocks out everybody in our team.”

    Brilliant comment, couldn’t help but laugh when I read that.

    1. i do not get this comment, was wenger kidding when he made this comment? was he serious about it??

  6. “…I think it was by Koscielny, he knocks out everybody in our team.” so he means kos knocks out everyone???? lool
