Sead Kolasinac delivers cruel injury blow to Arsenal on eve of season

Defender set for two months out.

Arsenal have received an injury setback with the news Sead Kolasinac will miss eight to 10 weeks.

The Premier League club have announced that the Bosnian faces a stint on the sidelines as a result of the injury to his left knee, sustained in Wednesday’s International Champions Cup match against Chelsea in Dublin.

Kolasinac was replaced 20 minutes from the end of the contest, which the Gunners won on penalties.

A brief statement on the club’s official website read: “Sead Kolasinac sustained an injury to his left knee. Will be out for 8-10 weeks.”

It means the left-back is unlikely to feature for at least the first seven matches of the Premier League campaign, as well as the first two Europa League matchdays.

However, the club have better news about midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales international, who withdrew from the game against Maurizio Sarri’s side due to a tight calf, is aiming to return to training next week.
