Eduardo tackle still haunting Arsene Wenger

Time may be a great healer, and Eduardo da Silva's broken leg and ankle have knitted back together, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he cannot forgive Martin Taylor for the tackle that could easily have ended the Croatian international's career.

TArsenal return to Birmingham today for the first time since Taylor's challenge caused a horrific injury and was punished with a straight red card.

Wenger, asked if his feelings had mellowed a little, said: “No. But it is best not to speak about that anymore. The best way to help Eduardo is not to speak about what happened there.

“The injury had affected his pace, but now he is back to full pace, and Saturday is an opportunity for him to get over it completely. To be confronted by something that happens to you like that is always good.”
