You can’t help but feel sorry for Abou Diaby, but from an Arsenal fans point of view he has been nothing but a drain on the team’s wages since his arrival seven years ago. Every summer Arsene Wenger proclaims that his new-found fitness will be a great asset to the team, then within a month he is back on the treatment table.
This year is lining up to be no different, as Wenger has said that the recovery of both Diaby and Wilshere (although Jack is not due back for another three months at least) will be the usual LANS (like a new signing!).
Wenger said last night: “Hopefully, we will get Wilshere back playing for October.”
“With Abou Diaby returning, it will be like signing two new players. This season, the squad will be strong and competitive.”
To be honest I really think that Diaby is a very skillful player that has been extremely lucky with injuries, but I really can’t see him playing more than a few games before he returns to the medical department for another few months off. Perhaps I’m wrong, and I really hope I am……
