Football: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has played down the seriousness over Abou Diaby’s latest injury, claiming that the midfielder could even be fit for Arsenal’s Premier League game against Southampton this weekend.
Diaby, who spent almost the whole of last season on the sidelines, hurt his hip after scoring the winner in France’s 1-0 victory in Finland on Friday.
The 26-year-old missed his country’s win over Belarus yesterday as a result, but Gunners boss Wenger said: “He has slight pain on the hip, on the sartorius muscle. “It doesn’t seem serious at all to me. He even has a small chance to play on Saturday.”
