Just when we thought we saw the last of him, it now looks likely that we could see Sebastien ‘The Squid’ Squillaci feature against Spurs this Sunday.
The 31-year-old, who many thought would’ve been offloaded this summer, has missed the start of the season with a calf injury, but is expected to resume training this week.
Although this news may come as a boost to Arsene Wenger, who is without Thomas Vermaelen for a month and Laurent Koscielny, who picked up a slight knock against Bolton last Saturday, many fans will be dreading the return of Squillaci.
One of Johan Djourou or Alex Song are likely to partner Per Mertesacker in central defence tonight when the Gunners host Olympiakos, but Wenger is hopefully that he will have more options (in the form of Squillaci) this weekend when they travel to White Hart Lane:
‘Squillaci is not completely fit, he should be back in the group on Friday or Saturday.’
Hopefully Squillaci isn’t ready in time.
