Reports are out claiming that Arsene Wenger has defended Arsenal’s medical staff after England duo Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined the club’s growing injury list.
The French tactican defended the club’s training methods following criticism from Dutch fitness coach Raymond Verheijen, who also worked with Wales.
“This guy looks like he knows absolutely everything. I am amazed that he knows more than all our physios and all our doctors,” said Wenger.
“I trust my medical staff to do well and my coaching staff to do the fitness planning very well.
“I can only invite you one day to see what work is done behind (the scenes). We have some players who are more injury-prone than others, but we are very well organised on that front.
“We have to analyse every single case and every single exercise, but also I think you have to not over-analyse when players are injured.
“When a player is injured, they are injured, this has always happened.
“We have not too many muscular injuries but it is post-international games we get all these injuries and is it linked with that? I don’t know. What I’m focused on tomorrow is to continue our run (in the Premier League).”
