Arsene Wenger Says Yaya Sanogo’s Latest Injury is “Confidential”

Arsene Wenger Says Yaya Sanogo’s Latest Injury is “Confidential”

Arsenal fans shouldn’t expect to see Yaya Sanogo any time soon after the striker suffered an injury but manager Arsene Wenger is refusing to reveal exactly what the injury is.

The 23-year-old hasn’t been selected by Wenger since December 2014 and spent the start of last season on-loan at Ajax and the second half of this season on-loan at League One side Charlton.

However, he hasn’t played a competitive match at all in 2016/17 and his growth and development has been stopped well and truly in its tracks.

Sanogo was again missing in Wednesday night’s 2-0 defeat at home in the EFL Cup to Southampton and after the match, Wenger was keeping tight lipped on how badly injured Sanogo is.

Speaking via the Metro, the Gunners boss said:

“He had a real medical problem that I cannot explain to you here because it is a confidential problem.

“Not a secret problem, but it is medical, I cannot speak about that.

“He has no life-threatening problem but he had a long-term injury, and I am not specialised enough to explain to you exactly what it is in his calf.

“But we had to rest him completely.”

To be fair, it does make sense that perhaps we shouldn’t know specifically every single player’s medical records, but why can’t we know how long Sanogo will be out for?

Surely that’s a fairly basic requirement for football fans? Is there any chance Sanogo can resurrect his career at Arsenal?
