After admitting yesterday that Aaron Ramsey would be missing for ‘some weeks’, Arsene Wenger has today put a time frame on the midfielder’s absence.
As Arseblog News told you earlier in the week, we’re likely to be without the Welsh Jesus for 6 weeks. Speaking at his press conference today, the boss said, “Aaron will be out for 4-6 weeks. I count six weeks.”
It’s a big blow as Ramsey had, until his injury, probably been Arsenal’s player of the season with 13 goals in all competitions. A 6 week absence wouldn’t see him return until mid-March.
Wenger also said that Ramsey’s injury and Flamini’s suspension had informed the club’s transfer activity on deadline day with a midfielder in their sights.
