Wenger Delighted To Have Fit Full-backs

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that club full-back Bacary Sagna may take part of the Sunday match against Aston Villa.

With Villa set to give the Gunners a hard time, it may be the perfect venue for Sagna to get a taste of action after being sidelined for the whole first half of the season.

“Bacary is back in full training,” Wenger told Arsenal.com “Many players who are not specialist right-backs have been playing in this position so we are relieved to have him back.”

Arsenal Close To Having A Full-back

Arsenal’s critical situation is about to come to an end soon as team full-back Backary Sagna has returned to full training and thus completes his recuperation.

The Frenchman get back in time to catch the most of the second part of the season and have enough games played to secure his place in France’s Euro 2012 squad. At Arsenal he will be returning to the pitch as soon as he will be able to return to full form and all doubts of a possible new setback will be cleared by the medical staff.

Wenger Admits Arsenal Rumours Are True

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admitted that the club is now looking for a potential transfer, but stated again that a loan move is the more likely outcome if any good opportunity will show up.

According to the Frenchman the target at the moment is to transfer a full-back as a temporal replacement for all the injured full-backs at the club.

“At the moment we are exploring potential situations we can take advantage of but there is nothing concrete,” the Frenchman told Arsenal.com

Arsenal find full-back problem fixer

Arsenal’s full-back problems might be coming to an end as manager Arsene Wenger has eyed a young full-back who might be a proper addition to the Gunner squad.

Young Swansea full-back Neil Taylor has heard about the rumours and declared himself very excited about the possibility to join such a big club even though he’s happy at Swansea.

“I’m flattered by the interest from Arsenal,” said the 22-year-old in the Daily Star. “I’m enjoying my football at Swansea but it’s a great thing to hear.”

Arsenal’s Full-back Problem Will Become A Thing Of The Past Soon

Finally good news coming from the Emirates Stadium as Wenger confirmed that Arsenal’s star full-back Backary Sagna will indeed be ready for action much sooner than expected.

Having injured himself in the London derby against Tottenham from the start of the season after a challenge by Asou-Ekotto, Sagna was expected to be out for the better part of 3 months, but he’s proving to be a champion both on the field and off it and he’ll be back much in a shorter time than expected.

“He is a long way ahead of schedule.”, said Wenger.

Full-back Goes To Surgery And Leaves Arsenal Short Again

Arsenal’s injury problems are mounting on, and Wenger’s biggest problems are the full-backs who just seem to be cursed. First Gibbs, than Sagna than Jenkinson and finally Santos fell to injuries throughout this start of the season and now the French manager doesn’t have any options for the full-back position.

The worst is that this is not going to improve any time soon because even if Sagna returned to training the manager won’t rush his recovery and risk a possible setback, and Gibbs won’t be available still.

Mertesacker Praises The Defence. Should They Really Be Praised?

Arsenal’s central defender Per Mertesacker was satisfied by the way the defence handled the job in the Aston Villa match saying that they did a great job to stop Villa’s dangerous chances, but should Villa have had so many dangerous occasions to score?

“We felt the pressure because of the bad game against Man City [on Sunday] but we have now won away from home again,” said Mertesacker.

“We were under pressure but we found a good solution with the first goal. We created some good chances but not as much as we thought at the beginning as Villa were always quick. Gabriel Agbonlahor was in some good situations [to score] but defensively we did a good job.

Arsenal Lead The Chase For Milan’s Full-back

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger played without any full-backs in the match against Manchester City and started the game with Vermaelen on the left and Djourou on the right.

Djourou’s halftime substitution due to an injury sustained in the first half obliged Arsene to move the whole defensive team one spot to the right. Vermaelen came in the centre, Koscielny on the right and Miquel had to play on the left side. That’s when Arsenal’s problems really started to begin and the defence couldn’t take care of City’s attack anymore.

Arsenal Injury List Update. Transfers On The Horizon!

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger regrets having lost the City game, because he knows that the club will have a much stronger team for the second half of the season. Wilshere and Diaby will be soon coming back according to Wenger, and several transfers will also be brought in.

“We hope to have (Jack) Wilshere and (Abou) Diaby back so in midfield we have the numbers required.

“But at the moment we are short at the back and if Gervinho and Chamakh go to the Africa Cup of Nations we are short up front more than midfield.”

Arsenal Wants To highjack Valencia’s Full-back Deal

Ajax’s full-back Van Der Wiel seems interested in leaving the club after a long time spent at the Amsterdam team, and even though Valencia are now favourites Arsenal is looking to highjack their negotiations.

“I expect something to happen. I’ve already been at Ajax for quite some years,” Van der Wiel told NUSport.

“It is my club but I’m ready for a new step in my career.”

“I’m 24, which is a good time to go. I also think my departure will be good for my development.

“I have one year left on my contract after this season and I think Ajax will let me go.”
