Wenger explains Lacazette surgery situation



Arsene Wenger says that Alexandre Lacazette’s injury is a massive blow for Arsenal, after the French international was ruled out for 4-6 weeks following keyhole surgery on his knee.
The former Lyon man was expected to lead the line in the Europa League this week against Ostersund, but will be sidelined, leaving the door open for Danny Welbeck to take his place as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied for the European games.
Speaking to beIN Sports, the Arsenal manager shed some light on the situation and injury that manifested itself after the North London derby.
“Lacazette, at the minute I speak to you, has had a knee surgery and will not be available for the Europa League,” he said.
“Unfortunately he got a surprising swell of the knee after the Tottenham game, and he needed surgery, very quick surgery, and will be out for the next four to five weeks. “It?s a massive blow for us, but we have to find a solution. Nobody could predict it, but football is as well to do with unpredictable things and it?s always a good opportunity to find someone who steps in and does well.”
As for how the 26 year old was feeling, Wenger admitted he was down, and perhaps hinted this might have been the culmination of an ongoing problem.
“He is down but he recently must have felt something in his knee,” he said.
“Maybe that?s an explanation as well as to why he wasn?t scoring as many goals as he?s used to.”
