Granit Xhaka ruled out up to months after suffering a knee injury

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is going to miss for three months after suffering a knee injury during the final match against Tottenham.

The gunner’s midfielder needs medical attention for these months after their London’s derby win against Spurs.

“Further to injuring his right knee during Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, assessments and scans have confirmed that Granit Xhaka suffered a significant injury to his medial knee ligament,” an Arsenal statement read.

“A specialist consultation took place in London on Tuesday evening which has determined that Granit does not require surgery.

“Granit’s recovery and rehabilitation programme will start immediately and we are aiming for him to be back in action in approximately three months.

“Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Granit to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

The injury also sees Xhaka miss the last two international breaks of the calendar year, with Switzerland losing their captain for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Lithuania.
