Mathieu Debuchy delivers latest Arsenal injury update
Mathieu Debuchy is hoping to be fit again next month after his ankle injury
Mathieu Debuchy is hoping to be back in action for Arsenal next month.
The defender has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City at Emirates Stadium in September.
And the 29-year-old France international has vowed to come back “stronger” as he nears a return to action.
“My injury is now better,” Debuchy said at an Arsenal Soccer School in Dubai.
“I work hard every day with the physio and I want to be back on the pitch in December. I’m looking forward to it.
“I was really proud when I signed for Arsenal and it has been frustrating getting injured so soon, but I am focused on coming back stronger. I am very positive about that.
“Training at Arsenal is an extremely high standard. I’m nearly 30 but I’m still improving by training with players who are of such a high quality, like everyone at Arsenal.”
“It’s been more frustrating watching from the stands than being on the pitch. The last two games have been quite positive and hopefully when we face Manchester United we’ll come out on top.”
