“It Doesn’t Look Too Good” – Wenger Gives Mertesacker Injury Update

By on April 18, 2015

Arsene Wenger has said that Per Mertesacker’s injury ‘doesn’t look too good’ after the German international was forced off during our FA Cup win over Reading.

Mertesacker took a heavy challenge to the ankle shortly after the Championship side equalised early in the second half and he limped from the field to be replaced by Gabriel Paulista.

Speaking to Arsenal.com after the game, Arsene Wenger confirmed the centre-back has suffered an ankle injury and believes the initial signs aren’t good.

The boss said:

on Per Mertesacker…

He has an ankle problem. He is limping badly so that doesn’t look too good.

I’m sure Per will have tests on the ankle over the coming days so we’ll have to keep an ear out for further updates, but it seems the BFG is set for a spell on the sidelines.

Thankfully, Gabriel came in and helped us secure a 2-1 victory over Reading today so he could now be set to partner Laurent Koscielny against Chelsea at the Emirates next Sunday.
