It was reported this week that the Arsenal and England striker Theo Walcott was taking his recovery fron injury very carefully. The 25-year old is determined to do things properly and not to risk any setback to his return from the anterior cruciate ligament problem he picked up in the FA cup win over Tottenham.
But he is desperate to get back onto the pitch, as he told Arsenal.com. The disappointment of this season has spurred the flying forward on to greater things, or so he hopes. And Walcott is not just targeting a good year on a personal level, as he wants to surpass the 21 goals he scored last time, but he is desperate to help Arsenal to more trophy glory.
Theo feels that he and his Arsenal team mates have let Arsene Wenger down in recent years and they are all keen to make up for that and restore the Frenchman’s tarnished reputation by winning things. Obviously he would love to be able to help on that score in the FA cup final at Wembley in a couple of weeks, but he feels that the team is showing the form that should see us end that trophy drought. And he also believes that, as long as we do win the final, it could be the first of many trophies in the years to come.
Let’s hope he is right.
