Arsenal football manager welcomes back Djourou and Szczesny

14th April 2011 - Berko Tau

Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger will welcome back Johan Djourou and Wojciech Szczesny to his team for the game against Liverpool this weekend.

Goalkeeper Szczesny injured his finger in the loss to Barcelona in the Champions League on March 8th, while Djourou dislocated a shoulder in the FA Cup against Manchester United four days later.

Football manager Wenger expected both players to be out of action for the rest of the season, but they have worked hard to be fit again and could now face Liverpool at the Emirates.

Gunners defender Thomas Vermaelen is also back on the training pitch after being out of action since September with an Achilles problem.

The player only expected to be out for six weeks with the injury, and he told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws that the whole process has been difficult for him.

"After surgery, you soon become impatient. I'm a player they have to slow down - that's my problem. I felt a little pain but I had something in my head - 'I'll cope with it'. That's wasn't too smart," he said.
