Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas hinted Aaron Ramsey’s injury could force him to move to Spain.
Fabregas, linked with a summer move back to his native Spain, appeared to be on the verge of calling it a day after walking around the pitch shaking his head in a daze.
He said: “I love England. I know it is a great game but sometimes there is a mark you cannot pass. Sometimes we are victims. In five years I have seen three of these kind of injuries – Abou Diaby, Eduardo and now Aaron. We don’t complain but there are things in football that are a little too much. I’m sorry but that is too much. We are not protected enough.”
