Better news today for Gunners fans after Arsenal gaffer, Arsene Wenger, revealed that Samir Nasri’s leg break is ‘not a complicated one’ and the midfielder could be back in six weeks.

The news broke yesterday ahead of the 7-1 thumping of world class giants, SC Columbia, that Sami has broken his leg in training after going in for a challenge with Abou Diaby (How many legs is it he’s broken since coming back from his own injury?) and that he faced a lengthy lay off, causing fans to scream for new signings immediately.

However Arsene Wenger today revealed that the break isn’t a bad one and said we could have our man back in action in just six weeks.

‘Unfortunately he fractured his fibula and he will be out for six weeks, it was the bad news of the day.’

“He accidentally nicked the ball away from somebody having a shot on goal. Unfortunately he got kicked and broke his fibula. It’s not a complicated one, it’s a simple one but it will take six weeks to heal.

“But the options are Tomas Rosicky who is back. And in [those] two months Eduardo will be back as well. We do have offensive options but we don`t want to lose important players before the season starts.”


If Nasri does indeed get back to action in 6 weeks he would only miss out on 3 Premier League games and the two Champions League qualifiers. One of the league games is against Manchester United, but missing out on just three matches so early in the campaign is hardly the blow to our top four credentials that the media is making out.

Happy days.
