Arsene Wenger admits 'worry' over injured Abou Diaby

Abou Diaby in action
Diaby has already seen two surgeons following the injury

Arsene Wenger has admitted he has no idea when injured midfielder Abou Diaby will be able to return to action.

The 24-year-old has been out since 16 October having failed to recover from the effects of a challenge by Bolton defender Paul Robinson in September.

"Since he got this tackle, he has never come back to a normal level," said Wenger. "We have worries for him."

Diaby has seen two surgeons and Wenger admitted: "We don't know how long he will be out - we have to be patient."

Diaby has been seriously injured before but managed to fight his way back to fitness.

He suffered a broken leg and dislocated ankle against Sunderland in May 2006, but returned to become a key member of the north London side.
