Arsene Wenger Sympathizes With Alex the Destroyer.

Oxlade Chamberlain Out for Three Weeks

A recent injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is something to worry about for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal boss has expressed sympathy for the young English forward who was vital in the Gunner's FA Cup quarter-final triumph over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Ox as he is fondly called, picked up a hamstring injury while on duty for Arsenal on Monday night. Results of subsequent scans showed that he will be out for at least the next three weeks.

Despite his worry for the latest woe, Wenger is still optimistic that it will not be long before Chamberlain makes a return to full fitness.

“It's very frustrating for him because he played more games than ever this season,” the Arsenal manager said. “In the last two months I feel he was a bit in and out.

“He has shown again on Monday night what an important player he can be for Arsenal and for England. It's a shame that in the final sprint he's not there.

“It is affecting him because he loves to play. He knows as well that it is the type of injury where you can recover quickly and come back. But it is not an ideal moment.”
