Arsenal Seek New Bobby Charlton: Arsène Wenger Says Injuries May Be Down To Hair Loss Treatments
ARSENAL’S list of injuries is a running sore for Gunners fans. Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Abou Diaby, Lucas Podolski, Mesut Özil, Jack Wilshere, Laurent Koscielny and others have endured lengthy lay-offs this season. Who to blame?
Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has an idea.
“Some of them [muscle injuries] are down to the medication that the players take that you don’t even know about. Then you realise afterwards that they took this medication but that’s not prudent… If you lose your hair and you’ve taken something to make your hair grow, it might not be good, especially for the rest of your body. Medication always pushes a part of your body and is sometimes detrimental to other parts of your body.
“At the moment, we have not come to any conclusion … every case can be very different and you need to analyse very deeply why things happen. I’m surrounded by people who want to enhance their performances because they have another problem in their life and it’s not always necessarily a good thing to do.”
It’s not a physiotherapist Arsenal needs; it’s psychiatrist. And the number of Wayne Rooney’s trichologist.
Arsenal should also register an objection to the terms “bald” and “balding” being used as pejoratives.
If we have learnt anything from history it is that when Bobby Charlton decided to place a wig with a few strands of long hair over his natural auburn curls it was the making of his ‘brand’.
