Arsene Wenger today gave an update on Theo Walcott`s surgery after suffering cruciate knee ligament damage in the whooping on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup 3rd round.

The striker was ruled out till the start of next season and underwent surgery to fix the problem. In his press conference, Wenger said the procedure went well, but ruled out any possibility of Theo playing in the World Cup.

“It went very well. The damage was real in the knee so he will have to take the needed time, so let`s not be hopeful that he will go to the World Cup – that is not possible. But overall his long-term future is very positive. It’s about being fit for next season now.”
