Arsenal Striker Eduardo: I Am Not Injured

Eduardo, the Arsenal striker, has refuted suggestions that he is out injured for two months.

Arsene Wenger recently told the club's official website that the Brazilian-born star would miss the next two months.

However, speaking to Croatian paper Jutarnji, the player himself expressed his surprise at those comments.

"I do not know anything about the statement made by my coach," Eduardo said.

"It can not be true. I am completely ready physically.

"I was told that I will play between 20 and 30 minutes on July 27 when we play against Szombatelya. Two days later against Hannover 96 I will play a half.

"I feel great, next week I will play for Arsenal, and I believe that everything will be OK."

Eduardo only made four appearances last season, as he struggled with various niggles after recovering from his horrific broken leg.
