By on October 3, 2011

Arsenal fans will have been hoping that Bacary Sagna’s injury, sustained during the loss to Tottenham on Sunday, was not as bad as first feared. However, the worst has been confirmed by Arsenal’s official website, as they released this statement:

The Club can confirm that Bacary Sagna sustained a fracture to the fibula in his right leg during the match against Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

Further detailed investigations and assessments will take place on Monday, during which time Bacary will see ankle specialists and the Arsenal medical team regarding the further management of his injury.

It is expected that Bacary will be out for approximately three months and a surgical procedure cannot be ruled out at this stage.

Everyone at the Club wishes Bacary a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him playing again as soon as possible.

    OOOOOOOOOOh for GOD’S sake, look at the players we have injured at the moment. Our Problem is not that we didn’t buy. We have a very good team; however, most of the first team players are injured. I would take Vermaelen, Diaby, Wilshere back now. This will change our season dramatically. A midfield of Song, Diaby and Wilshere is Great. The Attack is good, and the defence can be perfect with Gibbs, Sagna, Ver, and Per. Kos is a good player as well. I mean who would you replace in such a complete team?
