Arsene Wenger gave an update on the horrific news of Samir Nasri’s injury moments ago in his post-match interview following the preseason encounter with SC Columbia.
The French youngster was the bearer of bad news on a day Arsenal’s first team cruised 7-1 in Austria.
Wenger has revealed the extent of damage to Nasri’s leg may not be as bad as what was initially presumed and the 22-year-old could be back in as early as six weeks time.
“He was training well but was mistakenly kicked. His injury is a simple fracture of the fibula and not too serious. Nasri should be out for six weeks” He told Arsenal TV
The boss also revealed that Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will join Nasri on the sidelines. The 24-year-old was missing on Saturday and again today after completing a solid 2008/09 season.
Unfortunately, Fabianski will be out for a few weeks.
“Fabianski has a little ankle problem and should be sidelined until the beginning of the Emirates Cup”
According to Wenger, the future of Philippe Senderos – who played in a defensive midfield role today – remains unresolved but insists the Swiss defender is open to stay at Arsenal.
“It is open. He has come back here with us still looking for solutions but he is still yet to decide on his future”.
