Debuchy out for three months

DEBUCHY-INJUREDLONDON, September 23-Arsenal will be without the services of right-back Mathieu Debuchy for three months after he underwent surgery on an ankle injury.

The Frenchman, who joined Arsenal in July for a fee believed to be around £12 million, suffered the injury during the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Manchester City earlier in the month.

It was initially hoped that Debuchy had only suffered a sprain, but further tests revealed ligament damage and he will now spend a substantial period out of action.

“He had surgery on Friday and will be out for three months,” said manager Arsene Wenger.

“A reasonable delay is three months. All went well, but it can be a week or two earlier or a week or two later, but it will be around three months.

“It is a blow of course, how big it will be we will only know afterwards because it will be down to how well we replace him. We bought [Calum] Chambers for that.”

    These are the same leaders who failed to condemn the jamia mosque riots where their ‘sons’ were proudly displaying the alshabaab flag. The community is being vetted as it has criminal elements within it; alshabaab financiers and refugees buying citizenship. They should stop playing victim and expose these elements.

    These hypocrates sd just stop calling for press. I do not mind being checked by police esp in this desperate times, all Kenyans have had to adjust their lives. The last thg we need is sm religious fanatics issuing warnin to the government while our warriors are being killed. If it means me going to answer sm questions in the police station whether am muslim or not is not the issue, I will coz our soldiers are paying the ultimate price at war.

    It took long enough.  When are we going to stop pussy footing around and  deal with these cowards.  It has taken far too long before anyone in authority has said “enough is enough”.  Get in there and get it sorted!!!

    It is not even a long time ago, almost two years now since we saw a number of No 9 matatus plying the eastleigh route displaying pictures of the most dreaded international criminal osama bin laden. We also was saw black flags with arabic writings hoisted on the sides of the matatus but it is only now that we realise that it was al shabaab flags proudly being displayed in the open. Again i dare to say only in Kenya can you blatantly break the law with total impunity. Not even one country in the entire world could allow this. It is only in Kenya where ‘money worship’ has reached epidemic levels. 
     When the islamic millitants attacked the US embassy in August of ’98 most Kenyans naively thought this isn’t our war but now look, we are faced with the same threat the USA  and indeed europe have been challenged with. My point is that Al-Qaeda/Al-Shabaab have deep roots in our country. The Muslim business community leaders should realize that they stand to loose if the public sees them siding with our enemies. They should choose on whose side they are on. You will not drag the govt. into solving problems between two individuals.Again during the riots at the Jamia mosque sometime ago when suspects of Kampala bombings were arrested the entire Muslim crowds congregated at the Jamia mosque and acted like as if this was not their country. The Muslim youth hurled rocks and shouted Arabic threats to the rest of the public. I remember that because of this provocation, there some skirmishes between them and the rest of the public . Immediately they town was divided into ‘Christian’ vs ‘Muslim’The important question now is…. do you have the right to hold a Kenyan passport if you are working directly against the aspirations and values of its citizens?

    “We fully support the government, what they are doing in terms of cracking down on Al Shabaab is commendable” yeah, we believe you… we do… almost.
