Arsenal defender Andre Santos is set to be missing from action for three months, the club has just announced.
A report on the website says: “Arsenal Football Club can confirm that, following investigations and subsequent medical opinions by Club specialists, left-back Andre Santos will have surgery to repair ligament damage in his right ankle sustained in the game against Olympiacos last week. Andre will have surgery in Brazil this week and is expected to be out for around three months. Everyone at the Club wishes him well.”
It’s a nightmare scenario for AW as Gibbo is out injured and TV5 has had to deputise in the position, robbing us of his strength in the central defence. Ho and indeed, hum.
So who will AW recruit in the January transfer window? Wayne Bridge on loan? Anyone know of any decent left-backs twiddling their thumbs?
