Bad news For Arsenal Fans as Club Confirms That a Star Player Will be Out For Three Months

Arsenal has sent some bad news to their fans today as they have revealed that star midfielder Granit Xhaka will be out of action for at least three months due to an injury. Xhaka who also doubles up as the assistant captain suffered an uncle injury on Sunday as arsenal managed to defeat their arch London rivals Spurs.

Early reports had indicated that he will be out for three weeks but the club through a statement has disputed the reports. The club however revealed that the experts had ruled out the possibility of having to undergo surgery. “A specialist consultation took place in London on Tuesday evening which has determined that Granit does not require surgery. Granit’s recovery and rehabilitation programme will start immediately and we are aiming for him to be back in action in approximately three months.” The club said through a statement some few minutes ago.

This will be a very big blow for Mikel Arteta as he looks to continue the recent winning spree that has seen them win three matches in a row. He however he is not sort of options as samba Lokonga and Mohammed Elneny can step in and cover for him.
