Arsenal's Squad Has Been Hit With A Bout Of Food Poisoning In China...

Arsenal's squad has been hit by a bout of food poisoning in China.




Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud were unable to take part in a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich.
Sead Kolasinac started but was forced off in the first-half after throwing up on the pitch.


Arsene Wenger said an Arsenal doctor believed the virus in the camp to be food poisoning

Arsenal won in a penalty shoot-out to decide the winning team but were more concerned about the lengthy casualty list.
Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey were also unwell but able to come on from the bench. One of the backroom staff has also been suffering from sickness.
Laurent Koscielny was absent with a back problem and assistant manager Steve Bould has been flown home after requiring surgery in Australia to cure a hernia in his neck.


'We have a virus in the camp,' said Wenger. 'The doctor thinks it is food poisoning. Mertesacker and Giroud were sick. Kolasinac was sick. Theo Walcott and Aaron have had a little bit of food poisoning as well. I don't know what they ate.'

The stifling heat of Shanghai, where temperatures have been touching 40C, combined with the gruelling pre-season training sessions has tested the players.


'It was a shock to come from Autralia where we were freezing,' said Wenger. 'We decided to work very hard on Monday and Tuesday and so I was a bit scared that we could have big problems.
'In the first-half we suffered a bit and second-half we were shaper and Bayern dropped as well. We had to dig deep and think we will benefit from it.'

It raises questions about the sense of travelling the world while preparing for the season. Arsenal will move on to Beijing where they face Chelsea on Saturday in the fourth and final game of their tour.
