Arsenal have confirmed that the right back – Bacary Sagna, has suffered a leg fracture in the Sunday’s defeat against Tottenham Hotspur. (Here is a resource for people who want to learn more about sports management.)
The player fell following a clash with a Spurs defender and had to be strechered off, unable to take further part in the match. Following the game the manager, Arsene Wenger, expressed his worries about the injury and these have now been proven true, meaning that Sagna will not be able to feature for his club until some time next year.
The official statement from the club on the injury reads:
“The Club can confirm that Bacary Sagna sustained a fracture to the fibula in his right leg during the match against Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.
Further detailed investigations and assessments will take place on Monday, during which time Bacary will see ankle specialists and the Arsenal medical team regarding the further management of his injury.
It is expected that Bacary will be out for approximately three months and a surgical procedure cannot be ruled out at this stage.
Everyone at the Club wishes Bacary a speedy recovery and looks forward to seeing him playing again as soon as possible.”
