News broke this week that serial physio botherer Abou Diaby could be handed a new deal to stay at Arsenal despite his terrible track record of making just 22 appearances over the past four seasons.
And it is fair to say that the Gunners faithful aren’t overly enamoured with the idea of keeping a player that features less frequently than a solar eclipse on the payroll when they should be looking to increase their home grown quota and free up space in the squad for new faces in the process.
A number of disgruntled supporters took to their social media accounts to express their disbelief, amongst other things, though many just came across as a hilarious divulgence of annoyance.
The 28-year-old has been blighted by a series of injury complaints in recent years, and must surely go down as one of the most injury prone players in Premier League history.
Wenger hints that Abou Diaby could still have a future at the club if he proves his fitness in the next few weeks. Unlikely to happen #AFC

It will be the height of all insult to Arsenal fans, if Abou Diaby is offered a new contract. Arsene Wenger should just behave himself.

Seriously, what mysterious hold does Diaby have over Wenger? A new contract would be utterly absurd.

Arsenal could offer Abou Diaby another new deal, says Wenger. Thought April Fools was yesterday.
