Arsenal star midfielder Alex Song is hopeful that teammate Abou Diaby will be back soon playing for the Gunners after a very long spell off the pitch.
Abou was back for a short while in November but now is unavailable again and likely to return in February.
“Abou is a hard working player. He always gives his very best to be back.
“When he returned in November and starting jogging again, we could all see how happy he was.
“But it’s difficult for him and it’s difficult for us too, because we know that with him, we are even stronger.”
About Diaby confirmed that he’s on the right way to getting back on the field saying:
“Everything is going smoothly for me at the moment and I believe I will be back in action around late February time.”
Wenger needs midfielders at the moment given Wilshere’s setback. Young new transfer Eisfeld might be an option but he’ll have to adapt to the Premiership before he will be able to aid the team in league games, so Diaby is still the closest option.
