So sad arshavin may not be line up this sunday  

Friday, 6 February 2009

Report that Arshavin 'won't be rushed' into derby debut in sunday’s game for the North London derby cos he may come too early for him.

The 27-year-old new signing is currently travelling back from Russia after obtaining his visa. He is scheduled to arrive on Friday night however, with only 10 days of pre-season training under his belt with Zenit St Petersburg, Arsène Wenger was suggesting the midfielder may miss out.

“I will have reservations yes," said the manager at the pre-match press conference. "The worst thing for a player is not being ready to play in a game of that intensity, or getting injured before having kicked a ball for the team.

“I will see what kind of shape he is in tomorrow to see if he will be involved in the squad or not. We are not in a hurry with him.

“He will be available. But at the moment he is somewhere in a plane. He had to fly back to Russia to get a visa and he is coming back tonight.

“I believe he is talented, intelligent and motivated. When you have these things together, you always have a chance to make an impact. But you have to give him time as well. He is not fit at the moment because he had only 10 days preparation after a long break.”

In my opinion is okay, we know hes not really fit cos not play since november. however arshavin must keep training well otherwise he could fail to save arsenal in surviving in champion league race for this season.
