Arsène Wenger says Aaron Ramsey’s comeback from injury will be different to Eduardo’s because the Wales midfielder has “no limitation of his joints”.
Ramsey will return to the ground where he suffered a broken leg when Arsenal travel to Stoke on Sunday and is expected to start after a scoring return to side against Manchester United last weekend.
Eduardo was a high-profile injury victim two years before Ramsey when he suffered a broken leg and dislocated ankle at Birmingham in February 2008. The Croatian failed to rediscover his best form after his recovery but Wenger insists Ramsey will not have the same problem.
“Eduardo had a little limitation of his ankle [and in] our job you need your ankle,” said the manager. “Aaron has no limitation of his joints.
“It's always down to moving your feet quickly and when you turn you have a limitation of your ankle, you don't move as quickly.
“The more research they make today, you find out that most of the injuries are linked with the mobility of your ankle.”Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
