Flamini Feels Sorry for Fellow Compatriot.

Arsenal midfielder, Mathieu Flamini has expressed his sadness over the misfortune that befell his fellow compatriot at the weekend. That incident has made the point earned from that 2-2 draw less important to him [Flamini].


Mathieu Debuchy twisted his ankle during Arsenal's clash with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium last Saturday. The Gunners were already in front after goals from Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez had brought them from behind and just 10 minutes to the end of the match, that awful occurence took place.

“I’m just very sad for Mathieu Debuchy,” the 30-year-old said.

“We don’t know what he has but it looks serious. [It’s] very unfortunate for him and we wanted to win the game especially for him. We didn’t so now we have to recover.

“We’re disappointed because I believe we had the possibility to win this game. Unfortunately we didn’t but it’s part of the game. I think everyone enjoyed the game. [It was played with a ] very high intensity and we gave everything against a very good team today on the pitch, but that’s the Premier League.

“Of course it’s very important we didn’t lose this game but like I said we had the possibility to win it. Unfortunately we didn’t and we’re just a bit disappointed because we have a lot of quality in our team. We have more maturity and this team is growing well, and I’m very proud of the boys. We gave everything again today and were great."

How long he would be out was not yet declared after that game but Arsene Wenger revealed the injury isn't a minor one.

“Debuchy has a badly sprained ankle, declared the manager. “How long will he be out? I don't know, but it doesn't look good.

“People told me they need a bit more time to assess how long he will be out but it's a bad ankle sprain.“
