Cesc admits fears of broken leg + Gallas injury worry
Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas told reporters that he fears he has broken his leg, with the Spaniard set to have an X-ray on his fibula tomorrow.
The 22-year-old is currently on crutches, and revealed to the English media after the Barcelona draw that he has worries about a possible ‘broken leg’.
Fabregas had been a doubt to even make the Barca game after picking up a knee injury in the 1-1 draw with Birmingham on Saturday and on Tuesday Arsene Wenger said he had a “40% chance” to play.
“I do not think it is going to be good news, but still I hope there will be,” said Fabregas.
“When I took the penalty, I was quite strong, but after when I went to get the ball, I could not walk any more.
“It is the fibula. I think I put my leg between Puyol’s when I was fouled, and kicked it.”
Meanwhile, William Gallas could miss the rest of the season due to the defender picking up another injury on Wednesday night.
French international Gallas suffered a recurrence of his calf injury during the 2-2 draw with Barcelona.
The Gunners boss told Canal +: “He pulled his calf muscle and I think it’s the end of the season for him. I think he will be ready for the World Cup.”
