by on December 30, 2011

Arsène Wenger is hopeful Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho will be available for the Gunners for there F.A Cup third round match against Leeds United on 9th January.  Both forwards are going to the African Nations of Cup which starts 21st of January and players normally meet up with there national teams two weeks before the tournament starts. But the Frenchman will try get an arrangement for both players so they are able to play for Arsenal in the F.A Cup tie.

The Arsenal manager said this on Chamakh and Gervinho.

“The competition starts on the 21st of January.”

“They have normally, legally, to turn up 14 days before, that means the 7th.”

“We will ask for delays for both of them, at least until the Leeds game [on the 9th].”

“Hopefully we can get an arrangement for that. They will miss the first two days of the preparation but on the other hand they are both fit to start the competition. Hopefully we can get an agreement.”
