Poor Abou Diaby.
Arsenal have confirmed that our French midfielder tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during today’s training session and will be out of action for much of the rest of the year.
A statement on Arsenal.com reads:
“Following consultations with specialists, Abou will undergo surgery to repair the injury in the near future. Abou is expected to be out for around eight to nine months.
“The thoughts and best wishes from everyone at Arsenal are with Abou, and we all wish him a successful recovery.”
Nobody deserves his luck. It’s very sad news indeed.
Arseblog News wishes Abou the best of luck with his recovery.
