Wenger really is losing the plot…
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger risks further anger from the club’s fans with news that he is prepared to negotiate a new contract for Abou Diaby, according to the Metro.
The 28-year-old has made just 180 appearances for the Gunners since joining the club all the way back in 2006, and is edging ever closer to qualifying for a testimonial!
Diaby has been extremely unfortunate with injuries throughout his career in north London, but surely the time is up for Wenger to give up on the player, who doesn’t look like putting these problems behind him.
“Diaby is progressing in training, step-by-step, but he is not in a position to play yet,” Wenger said.
“I will have to talk to him soon (about his contract). I plan to do it in March.”
