Arsenal midfielder Denilson reassured the fans that the hamstring injury suffered on Sunday against Huddersfield will only keep him out of action for three days.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online after the game, the midfielder explained that he felt pain before his attempted pass to Tomas Rosicky and how he was forced back on to the pitch as the Gunners simply couldn’t afford to lose another player after centre back Sebastien Squillaci was sent off in the first half.
Asked about rotation adopted by manager Arsene Wenger during the months of December and January, the Brasilian replied by saying how there is quality in midfield and how the return of Abou Diaby – who played a very good game – will add even more quality to the side.
Ahead of next month’s Carling Cup against Birmingham, the 22-year old confessed he would be delighted to feature at Wembley as it is Arsenal’s chance to forget the lost final against Chelsea in 2007 and win a trophy for the fans.
After Huddersfield, Denilson said:
My leg, I feel a little bit sore but I think in three days I will be back in training. When [Tomas] Rosicky passed to me in the box [and] I crossed back to him I felt the [pain]. I [was told] that if I didn’t come back we would be with nine [men] on the pitch so I said, ‘It doesn’t matter, I have to go back, it doesn’t matter if I feel [the pain] more, I have to play’.
Every game the boss changes players. Sometimes I play, sometimes Abou does, he’s back, he played very well, I’m very proud of him. And sometimes it’s Jack or Alex but what is important is to work together, to fight in training.
I’m very excited to play the [Carling Cup] Final. When I came in England we were in the final against Chelsea and lost but this year I’m more confident and we have to win for the fans.
