Wenger cautious about Wilshere but ‘the signs are good’

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken about Wilshere’s status again, and according to the Frenchman he’s not that long away from being fully fit.

Jack wishes to be back in time to get ready for the Euro 2012 championship, but according to the Frenchman the English International is going to cut it very close.

“Jack Wilshere had a scan today,” said Wenger. “When I walked out to the training session at 11am we still had no information about it. The progress in training is very good but what you do not want is to have any setbacks.

Emmanuel Frimpong hoping for good news today

The Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong was stretchered off in the first half of Wolves 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday and he has had an anxious weekend in a brace waiting for the visit to the hospital today for the crucial MRI scan on his knee.

After missing the whole of last season thanks to a damaged cruciate ligament, he is obviously worried that the same problem has come up again, but he is keeping his spirits up while he is wating.

He tweeted to his followers yesterday: “Having scan on Monday hopefully aint serious like my cruciate last year.”
