You have to feel so bad for this player. Not only was he just warming up at Arsenal, but he also looked like the missing piece of the puzzle that could have catapulted the club back in the top four. Sadly, they’ll have to wait for his services once again.
“Eduardo is out for two weeks. What a nightmare,” said the Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger. “Nobody knows how it happened but I knew straight away after the game it would be a two-week job. It is nothing like he had before but I do know that little setbacks like this are part of being nine months out. After that long out, nobody plays six months on the trot. It is impossible. But at the same time it is a blow because, of course, he can score goals. He had shown that on Monday night.” (The Guardian)
Eduardo’s two goal night against Cardiff proved that the Brazilian-born player was on his game from the word go; but apparently he took it a bit hard in the match. Maybe next time out Arsene Wenger will ask him to take it easy (if that’s even possible). For now Arsenal are back to playing the waiting game.
