The Welsh and Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has suffered a broken leg, reminiscent of the same injury suffered by team-mate Eduardo in 2008.
Aaron Ramsey suffered a leg break against Stoke in Arsenal’s 3-1 victory.
Playing in Arsenal’s 3-1 win at Stoke, Aaron Ramsey suffered a broken leg in the 65th minute after a challenge with Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross.
The 19 year old was stretchered off the pitch' and travelled straight to hospital and underwent an operation, which Arsenal described as being successful, on Saturday evening.
“During yesterday’s match against Stoke City, Aaron Ramsey sustained fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Yesterday evening he underwent surgery,” read an official club statement.
“The operation successfully reduced the fractures and whilst it is too soon to state an exact timescale for recovery, Aaron will certainly miss the remainder of this season.
“Our thoughts are with Aaron at this time and everyone at the club wishes him all the best in making as speedy a return to action as possible.”
“This is the third injury of this type I have seen in three years. First Diaby, then Eduardo and now Ramsey. I don’t think the referee’s are giving enough protection.”
