Arsenal star set for "surprise" return

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that midfielder Abou Diaby will return to training on April 1, reports John Cross of The Mirror

The 27-year-old has been out for a year with a knee ligament injury, but now it appears that he could return before the end of the season. 

However, despite the positive news regarding the midfielder's fitness, Wenger has insisted that he can't plan for life with the Frenchman. 

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's clash with Manchester City - speaking about Diaby - the Gunners boss told reporters: "I can't plan for coming games with him, but maybe he will surprise."

Arsenal fans will be hoping to see Diaby return to the setup as they target Premier League title success this season. Despite suffering setbacks in their last two fixtures, the Gunners are still only six points behind league leaders Chelsea. 

Wenger's side will now be desperate to secure all three points against title rivals Manchester City this weekend as they look to get back to winning ways. 

However it remains to be seen as to whether Diaby will make an appearance for Arsenal before the end of the season. Gunners fans will be desperate to see Diaby put his injury problems behind him as the north London outfit target long term success.
