thumbnail Hello,

Eduardo has accepted injuries as part and parcel of being a professional footballer...

Arsenal striker Eduardo is refusing to get worked up about his latest injury setback.

The Brazilian-bred Croatia international has been unlucky with injuries over the past 13 months to say the least. A horrific leg break was followed by a couple of niggling injuries, the latest of which has laid him low for another week at the least.

"Really, it's nothing now for me to deal with these small injuries like hamstring and groin strains - I can understand them," Eduardo told Arsenal's official matchday programme, referring to the injury he picked up against Roma.

"I have plenty of experience of this now, having been out for so long, and I think I am experiencing these little problems because I didn't have a pre-season.

"But I'm calm about it and I'm feeling better with every day and every training session."

It remains to be seen whether Eduardo will be back available for Arsenal's next game away to Newcastle this weekend.
