Wojciech Szczesny is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines after dislocating his finger in last night’s 1-1 draw between AS Roma and Barcelona.
The Polish international was injured during a collision with Luis Suarez and today underwent scans that revealed the full extent of the problem. Not only had his finger been racially abused it was also banjaxed.
It’s feared the 25-year-old could miss as many as ten games including two Champions League games and Serie A showdowns with the likes of Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Inter.
The Arsenal number 1 has been enjoying his loan spell in the Italian capital in recent weeks turning heads with match-winning saves against Juventus and Frosinone.
