The manager of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, believes that Theo Walcott would be able to completely recover from his recent injury setback.
These ligament injuries have ruined the careers of so many soccer players and many people fear that it might do so to Walcott as well who is currently one of the most exciting players going around in England.
But, Wenger doesn’t think so. He reckons that Walcott is a tough character and he would bounce back in a very strong way.
Walcott who is not even in his mid twenties was probably playing the best football of his career before getting injured. It’s because of his consistency that Arsenal has been sitting at the top of the league table since a long time. But, with him being sidelined, Wenger knows that life is not going to be that easy for his team now.
When the Gunners boss was asked if the English striker would manage to play the same kind of football that he was playing before getting injured, he said, “Yes, I think so and the reason behind that is his age. He is only 24 and at this age, you get recovered from injuries quite well even if they are quite serious. If he had been 30 and had suffered the same kind of injury, I would probably have had a bit of doubt in my mind, but, at 24, he should be back strong.”
“Theo is one of those guys who have got enormous mental strength. He is capable of coming out of these sorts of adverse situations.”
Walcott has been a part of Arsenal FC since the last 7 years. He has played close to 200 Premier League matches for the London based club so far and has scored 45 goals.
