Debuchy ruled out of European Championships

43

Mathieu Debuchy has been ruled out of the European Championships this summer after picking up a thigh injury at his loan club Bordeaux.

The French international fell behind Hector Bellerin in the Arsenal pecking order this season, and from the start of the new campaign was agitating for a move away, citing his desire to represent France in the tournament, played on home soil, as the key factor.

He moved to the Ligue 1 side on deadline day in January but has had in injury hit time there, making just nine league appearances for his loan club since his arrival.

In truth, having lost the confidence of Didier Deschamps, Debuchy was something of an outside bet to regain a place in the France squad. Bacary Sagna is expected to be first choice with Lyon’s Christophe Jallet providing back-up.

The 30-year-old will likely be sold by Arsene Wenger when he returns to London.

Disappointed for Debuchy – 2 major injuries derailed his career. But that doesn’t excuse his behaviour after losing his place to Bellerin.

Hope Wenger can find a RB to properly challenge Hector

GYWE

A RB to properly challenge Hector? Bring out the Jenko…

Nasri's missing chinbone

Spares him the feeling of rejection from the French squad…

GunnAlex

Phahaha. Ha

Sorry if it’s a dick move to laugh at a playing staff’s misfortune. But he’s hardly been squeeky clean during this whole debacle.

Mr. G

Nothing wrong with laughing at him. He spend half the season acting like an unprofessional shameless sulk who resented the fact Bellerin stopped him from walking into the starting eleven. I can’t remember the last time a player moaned as much as he did. He even had the nerve to publicly state he was annoyed that Wenger blocked a loan move to United, one of our rivals! Try comparing him to Gibbs, who faced a similar situation. My only concern is that his injury might impact our ability to move him on this summer. Because I don’t want this cretin… Read more »

Oh dear, what a pity, never mind

David Hillier's luggage

Oh well

goonerestgooner

I had completely forgot about him…..

Bosscielny

Karma is a bitch.

TommyGun

exactly what I was going to say mate.

benjarmayn

I find this absolutely hilarious.

Gooneron

He is an arsenal player afterall. Injury comes with the contract…

ScotchEggsRules

I’d forgotten he still played for us…

Don Cazorleone

silly cunt

Karma is de-Bitch-y

Serves right for someone who never valued the crest he was playing for.

Hi-brid

Oops.

AllGunsABlazin

If it was anything other than an injury I’d laugh.

Actually, fuck it.

Haaa.

aberinkula

Debuchy bitched, whined, and aggrevated for a move away after being usurped by the infinately superior “Him, Bellerin”, in the misguided perception that said move would guarantee his assured place at the Euros. And now he’s picked up and injury and been ruled out? Well, excuse my schadenfreude.

My name is Jeff

What a putz.

Le Jim

Hahahah what a cunt.

Guess it wasn’t such a good idea to burn your bridges at the only big club that will take you, in order to try, and fail, to go the the Euros then, was it? xD

Xzibit

Flamini has a better shot than him for the Euros.

badaab

Flamini could just buy the euros.

Gooneron

Flamini has the euros

Formos

He has a lot Euros

David

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha he whined and talked shit about us and how he needs to get away cause he wants to play on the euros and look at what happens now, bet he will find a way to blame arsenal for the injury

Yuck fu

Lol, rofl etc

freethedebuchy1

haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

badaab

I wonder if Newcastle would swap him for janmaat?

UMG

Not sure either party would want anything to do with that deal!

TommyGun

I wish him a speedy recovery… so we can sell him.

Nelson

(Points Finger) HA Haaaaaa!

A Badger

I bet he wishes he’d stayed at Newcas…oh, maybe not.

Cliff Bastin

Hahahahahaha. Bellerin and Chambers made sure we didn’t miss him at all.

John 'John Radford' Radford

I loved his hits from the 1980’s – some proper disco…very similar to ‘Prince’.

Oh sorry I thought we were discussing DeBarge.

Me So Hornsey

I almost wanted Man U to take him on loan.

Just so that they could have an even more shit right back than Valencia.

Frog

Wanker.

Merlin's Panini

I think he was really ruled out when he started playing like shit and acting like a victim, to be honest.

MyquelGunner

Comment:That’s the price you pay 4 being disloyal to the master(Wenger). You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Alexstratz

Good news for him, avoids him the sadness of not being selected.

Rock me Marcus Reus

I feel something vaguely resembling sympathy and it feels weird. Despite all his efforts he missed his last shot at the one thing he wanted the most. Still, he could have put a bit of effort on the pitch on the few occasions he was selected. Either way he can eat a whole bag of dicks.

Wenger in or out?

The irony

He's the soup

He’s like a new, injured signing.

Checks all the boxes for me
