Bacary Sagna, out since breaking his leg on Oct 2nd against Sp*rs, has revealed he’s forgoing further medical treatment to ensure he returns as quickly as possible.
The French international’s fracture was fixed with a pin and screws and while in most cases there is further surgery to remove them, Sagna is having none of it.
Speaking to L’Equipe he said, “I have screws but I don’t think I will have them removed. That would mean another two months on the sidelines.
“I was told I would spend three or four months out and I am on schedule. I have resumed jogging and I should kick the ball again in the coming days.”
There are some suggestions he may make it back for the Man United game on Jan 22nd but Arseblog News believes that’s a very optimistic, although not impossible, target.
Meanwhile, Bac has become the latest Arsenal player to laud the return of Thierry Henry. With the Gunners desperate for more goals and players who can score them, Sagna believes Henry will have a big impact.
“It will have an impact on the team and our adversaries,” he said. “He is always looking for perfection and he knows what to do to win trophies. When he talks, everyone will listen to him. His comeback is the event of 2012!”
