Kallstrom Suffers Back Injury In First Session

Kallstrom Suffers Back Injury In First Session

Reports appear to be breaking out of Sweden that Arsenal new boy, Kin Kallstrom has injured himself in his first training session and will be out for three months.

I`m not quite sure why this story would have to come from Sweden and not from the UK, or whether or not it`s a wind up, but it seems as though the story is picking up pace.

More as soon as we have it.

Update: The BBC's David Ornstein says Kallstrom is out with a back injury and the reports of him being out for 2-3 months are inaccurate.

Updated update: Arsenal confirm the injury but say it isn't serious, though Kallstrom will not be in the squad for tomorrow. I susspect he wouldn't have been eligible anyway.

Updated Updated Update: The Mirror claim the injury did not happen in training, infact Kallstrom arrived with the injury but Wenger decided to sign him on loan anyway.

Ironic if it's true but he'd have been a benchwarmer anyway.

It's not nice to laugh at an injured player, but the thought of thousands of Gooner brains exploding at this news is making me chuckle.

He's not going to play more than a handful of league games and maybe one or two in the cup. No big deal but a shame for him. Heating its short-term.

It would have been worse if we'd signed Messi and he was out for the rest of the season!!! Didn't Campbell suffer something similar, though not too critical, after he'd rejoined?

You know this is going to blown out of all proportion, but it's only news because it's kinda funny. If he'd have been injured next week nobody would have paid a blind bit of noticed, but it's just because it's his first day.

The speed with which information travels these days! Or is it the rubber-necking interest in all things Arsenal? No wonder some fans are losing it. From all accounts this is not a signing for the masses. As unfortunate as an injury is a a mass hysteria would even be more than unfortunate.

Nothing yet on the official site but, I guess you can't miss what you didn't really "have". We might as well assume the status quo, especially as he wasn't going to be a sure starter with our key men fit. Rather unfortunate, if true.

Safe to say that the word 'medical' regarding arsenal new signings has nothing to do with checking a player's fitness and susceptibility to injuries. I believe we may cancel the loan if its really 3months he'll be out for. I do think its true, same was said of ramseys injury until wenger had no choice but to confirm the lengthy lay off. Judging by sanogo's 6 months and counting... Back injury, the future looks bleak for the chap.

Completely bizarre signing, so many baffling transfers have happened at the club the last few years
