Arsenal Football Club’s recent bad patch has worsened with the news that captain Thierry Henry has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to damaged groin and stomach muscles. Henry, who has struggled with fitness all season, was injured after appearing as a substitute in Arsenal’s UEFA Champions League second leg tie against PSV Eindhoven.
So how will Arsenal be affected by their captain’s latest injury? ESPN Soccernet writer Jon Carter has a great article on the topic that you can view here.
One thing seems to be quite clear; the Arsenal Football Club medical team and manager Arsene Wenger seem to have agreed that risking Thierry Henry, with no silverware within Arsenal’s grasp, is not worth it, and he will be encouraged to regain full fitness for next season.
For all Arsenal fans out there, hopefully Henry will be back and firing for Arsenal in the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League if we hold onto our top four position.
