Arsenal’s Lukasz Fabianski has been ruled out for the rest of the season following surgery required to treat a shoulder injury.

After a very wobbly start to his Arsenal career, Fabianski was just starting to turn his fortunes around with a string of solid, if unspectacular, performances.

Arsene Wenger confirmed the Polish Keeper would be out for the rest of the season.

‘We had bad news for Lukasz Fabianski because he need surgery on his shoulder, he has decided after having seen a few specialists that he will have surgery in Germany. It means his season is over.’

This will come as a huge blow to Fabianski who had worked incredibly hard to improve his confidence, and unfortunately for him (but fortunately for the rest of us) Wojciech Szczesny has broken through into the first team at just the right time.

I guess it could have also been worse when considering it would have been completely understandable had we sold Manuel Almunia in the January transfer window, though I reckon Arsene Wenger probably had a fair idea of what was going on.
