Over the trophy-drought years for Arsenal, injury has been the bane of our seasons but our tale end up differently this term.
Thankfully, Arsene Wenger has been working hard to ensuring that his players are less prone to injury, as he has already implemented an ingenuous plan.
According to The Sun the boss brought about a drastic training ground change earlier this year which will reduce the risk of players’ injuries by up to 40 per cent.
The report claims that the pitches at London Colney HQ training ground were torn up after an initial period of almost two years – And, in their place, AirFibr technology grass has been laid in their place.
The turf is made of 100 percent natural grass as claimed by the Paris based producers. However, it is said to be anchored in an artificial root zone formed with granulated natural cork, sand and synthetic microfibers.
Arsenal were the first Premier League team to install the new technology, with their cross-city rivals West Ham following suit.
Real Madrid have had it for some time though, as have various venues that this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament took place at.
Wenger will be hoping the change can help Arsenal avoid the kind of injury crisis they are currently in the midst of.
Chuba Akpom, Gabriel, Olivier Giroud, Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck are out of action and they will all likely miss tomorrow night’s Champions League showdown with Ludogorets.
