However, Arsene Wenger has repeatedly stressed that he his baffled by the soft tissue injuries we’ve suffered this season, mainly to Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman is currently nursing his third hamstring strain of the season having only recently returned from six-week lay-off with the same problem.
A quick glance at the Arsenal jobs website has seen a few interesting vacancies appear, the latest being an opening for a ‘First Team Soft Tissue Therapist‘.
There is obvious improvement needed in this area and when looking at clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool, they suffer significantly lower number of soft tissue injuries which are preventable.
