Walcott gives injury update, hails Sanchez capture


Theo Walcott says the recovery from his knee injury is going very well and the England man has taken time to laud the signing of Alexis Sanchez.

Speaking to the official site, Walcott spoke about how his rehab for the cruciate knee injury, picked up against Sp*rs in the FA Cup was going.

“The knee is going really well,” he said. “I am doing some good stuff with the physios and fitness coaches and we have worked really hard throughout the summer.

“Things are looking really good and I have worked very hard for the last five months now. The most important thing is getting the strength back and it has pretty much nearly healed – it is just about building up that stability and strength again.

“It is coming along nicely and I am really pleased.”

Although no firm date has been put on his comeback, it’s believed he could play in late September/early October, providing he doesn’t suffer any setbacks.

Theo also hailed the signing of Alexis Sanchez, saying that opposition defences will be scared of the dual threat the two will pose when they finally play together.

“With me and him on the flanks, a lot of teams won’t be looking forward to playing Arsenal this year!”, he said.

“There’s a great buzz around the club at the moment. He is a marquee signing and something that the club has pushed on to: first you had Ozil and now it’s Sanchez. Who knows where it is going to stop?”

We here at Arseblog News don’t know the exact answer to that question, but it’ll be somewhere. That’s just how it goes.
