Wenger Confirms Fresh Striker Injury

By on July 27, 2014

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that striker Yaya Sanogo missed our trip to New York due to a small thigh injury.

The young French forward was a surprising name to be left out of the squad that left for the States last week ahead of our clash with Thierry Henry’s New York Red Bulls side on Saturday night.

His absence led to rumours suggesting he could be set for a loan move away from the club. However, Arsene has now revealed that Sanogo was simply left back in north London as he is suffering from a minor thigh injury.

Arsene told Arsenal.com:

“Sanogo didn’t come because he had a little thigh problem and we didn’t want to take a gamble.”

Despite Arsene’s claim, there are still some fans who believe the boss is telling us a little white lie and that Sanogo may have been lining-up a short-term deal away from the club.

However, I personally don’t see the youngster leaving this summer as I think Arsene has huge faith in him, so I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of him around the first team next season….as long as he can stay fit.

    Its a bloody awful gamble every time he is allowed to put on an Arsenal shirt.

    How does a player get injured on holiday? what’s going at Arsenal FC, this injury thing is becoming a joke our club has become a laughing stock where injuries are concerned, this has to stop if we are supposed to be serious championship contenders. No more excuses, make sure the players stay fit.

    If we’ve got worry’s all ready with Sanogo,why don’t we try & purchase Loic Remy now that his deal with the Scouser’s has fallen through becuase we can’t ponce around with our striker’s this year!!!!
