After undergoing exploratory surgery, Arsenal defender Johan Djourou should be back in action in four weeks, according to Arsenal.
In a club statement issued on Tuesday, the Club confirmed that the centreback undergone exploratory surgery on his dislocated shoulder, confirming the positive news that there isn’t a need for reconstructive surgery and that the defender will now begin a period of rehabilitation on the shoulder before returning to training in around a month.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny confirmed that he is still keeping himself busy despite the finger injury suffered against Barcelona as he told Arsenal TV Online that he works everyday on his distribution and lower part of his body.
I work in the gym everyday, working on my lower body and my distribution as well which will be very good for me. I’m not getting bored, I can still do a lot of stuff.
There’s nothing you can do when it happens – you have to move on, work hard on your fitness and make sure you come back stronger than ever.
There’s not a lot of joint damage, the tendon is ruptured. So basically I have to keep my finger in a splint for four weeks and let the tendon heal. From then it will be a couple of weeks before I can be back in the squad. It’s very hard, especially at a time when it was going well for me. We have got some big games coming up.
