Football: Arsenal's Lukas Podolski out for three weeks, Wenger says
LONDON, England (AFP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said that Lukas Podolski would be out for around three weeks after the German forward injured his hamstring against Fenerbahce in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Germany forward had to be stretchered off early in the second half of Arsenal's 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium, which completed a 5-0 aggregate win in the play-off round tie.
Wenger also saw Aaron Ramsey, scorer of both Arsenal's goals, go off with a groin complaint, while Jack Wilshere took some heavy blows to his troublesome ankle late in the game.
"That's the negative of tonight. We played a heavy price on the injury front because we lost Podolski," Wenger said.
