Wenger is unsure whether Abou Diaby will remain on the sidelines for a few more weeks or months.

The midfielder suffered more than just bruises to his leg after a strong tackle from Bolton’s Paul Robinson saw off his brief substitute appearance on Saturday.

Diaby, however, did manage to stay on his feet and walk towards the dug-out but Wenger revealed after the game that the former Auxerre man was in a worrying condition.

And prior to the clash with SC Braga, the Arsenal boss ruled out the 24-year-old for Arsenal’s next couple of games at least, but even after Wednesday night, Wenger was still uncertain over how long Diaby will take to recover from what was a serious injury.

“We have to wait to see how he responds to that shock. There’s a bruise and some ligaments [damage]. We don’t know when he’ll play again at the moment.”
