It’s a well known fact that over the years ever since Wenger came to the club there have always been problems regarding injuries. Arsenal players are falling to tough injuries and have to sit out whole seasons, and we can mention some starting with Wilshere, Frimpong (twice), Ramsey, Diaby, Eduardo, Van Persie and many, many others.
Wenger has even accused the opposition of targeting his players and causing the injuries intentionally, but it may be a bit more than that. The Brazilian full-back Santos was brought in last summer, and he managed to get accustomed pretty well to Premiership’s rigors showing us just how valuable a player he is, but then he got injured in the game against Olympiakos, and according to himself it was the first time he had to undergo surgery in his life.
After returning to fitness he declared: “The Premier League is something different – it’s the best league in the world. It’s hard to play in, the pace is different, the fact that almost every pitch is wet makes the ball run more, the tackles are harder, and it’s just really good,” he told Arsenal.com
“I have totally adapted. I feel very well, people here have received me with open arms, and I mean everyone, the club, the staff and the fans.
“Now all I want is to make history with this club.”
“All of that gave me the strength to carry on, and it all just contributes to my desire to work hard for this club and win titles in the red shirt.”
So, what’s up with the injuries and how come its always Arsenal players that get injured like that?
Surely it can’t just be that the Premiership is harder than other leagues or else other teams would have the same problems every year?
