Jack Wilshere is facing six weeks on the sidelines with a broken bone in his foot, and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is the man Arsenal are pointing the finger at.
Wilshere was the recipient of a stiff challenge from Agger during England’s international friendly with Denmark, with it later confirmed he had broken a bone.
The Mail’s Sami Mokbel believes Arsenal are extremely upset with the challenge by Agger at Wembley. In his piece, Mokbel wrote:
Arsenal are furious with Liverpool defender Daniel Agger for leaving Jack Wilshere with a broken foot.
While Arsenal, who have a close relationship with the FA's head of medical services Dr Ian Beasley and Lewin—both former club employees—are said to be shocked by Wilshere's injury, the real anger was towards Agger following his robust challenge in Wednesday's friendly.
The Dane has since described the challenge as a '50/50'—but that will not comfort Wilshere or Arsene Wenger ahead of the crucial season's run-in.
While Arsenal are said to be angry about Agger's challenge, the FA are also in their sights. Sun scribes Mark Irwin and Shaun Custis (subscription) state that the Gunners will seek somewhere in the region of £600,000 in compensation from the governing body to cover the player's wages while he's out injured.
