Mathieu Debuchy had impressed mightily in his short time at Arsenal before getting injured in a freak accident in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City back in September, however the Frenchman says he`s almost ready to return.
The right back had proved an able (if not better) replacement for the departed Bacary Sagna but was forced off the pitch after an awkward landing in the big clash a few months ago, but now he says he`s only weeks away from action and can`t wait to get back on the field.

“My injury is now better,” Debuchy said at an Arsenal Soccer School in Dubai. “I work hard every day with the physio and I want to be back on the pitch in December. I`m looking forward to it.”

“I was really proud when I signed for Arsenal and it has been frustrating getting injured so soon, but I am focused on coming back stronger. I am very positive about that.”

“Training at Arsenal is an extremely high standard. I`m nearly 30 but I`m still improving by training with players who are of such a high quality, like everyone at Arsenal.”

“It`s been more frustrating watching from the stands than being on the pitch. The last two games have been quite positive and hopefully when we face Manchester United we`ll come out on top.”
