Broken leg woe for Gunner Sagna

BY foxsports • October 2, 2011

Sagna was taken off the pitch on a stretcher after falling badly in the 68th minute and news of the break was later revealed by the French Football Federation. The right-back had been due to link up with the national side but has been replaced by Lille's Mathieu Debuchy. The news piles the misery on Arsene Wenger, whose Gunners dropped to 15th place in the Premier League after a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. France, who will be without Sagna for the games against Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina, released the following statement: "The doctor of the France team, Fabrice Bryand, was informed by Arsenal of a fracture to the right fibula of Bacary Sagna. "The player was hurt during the match lost 2-1 by his club against Tottenham on Sunday. The defender will be operated and is not expected to be available for three months." Sagna joins an injury list at The Emirates that already includes Jack Wilshere, Thomas Vermaelen, Abou Diaby and Johan Djourou. Carl Jenkinson, a summer signing from Charlton, came on for Sagna against Spurs and could now be set for an extended run in the first team.
