Arsenal Ace ‘Positive’ Despite Injury Woes
Arsenal ace Mathieu Debuchy says he’s still positive despite enduring a nightmare injury-plagued first season at the club.
Debuchy moved to the Emirates from Newcastle last summer but has been restricted to just 14 appearances in all competitions.
The right-back initially broke his ankle against Manchester City back in August before dislocating his shoulder against Stoke in January.
The 29-year-old has admitted it hasn’t been easy having to undergo two operations in one season but insists he still remains positive and is no longer in any pain.
“It hasn’t been easy for me to undergo two operations in the same season, but I am still positive.
“I’m no longer in pain, I went into challenges and I made tackles. I now need to regain my rhythm.
“It is going to be difficult for Arsenal to win the title, as Chelsea are doing very well, but it would be great if we can finish second.” source
Debuchy made his playing return with a run-out against Brentford in a friendly on Tuesday and he could be in contention to face Liverpool on Saturday.
I personally don’t think Arsene Wenger will start him as he’s still lacking match practice but it’s great to have the experienced full-back fit again and just in time for an exciting run-in.
