Wenger not confident of seeing midfield star anytime soon.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed what most Arsenal fans already knew by giving a downbeat prognosis on the future of About diary, who may now have kicked his final ball for the club, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Frenchman made a tentative return to action earlier this season, only to succumb to another fitness concern, and Wenger was quizzed on the midfielder’s prognosis.
“At the moment he is not in a position where he will be able to play soon because he is not on the field at all,” Wenger said.
Having made just 16 appearances over the past four years, Wenger did not sound positive when it came to the subject of renewing the player’s contract, which expires at the end of the current campaign.
“I will have a decision to make about his contract,” he added.
