Wenger Wants Dues

Posted on: November 23, 2008

LONDON: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said on Friday that the Gunners should be compensated by the England FA for the injury sustained by Theo Walcott on England duty this week.

Walcott slipped in training on the eve of Wednesday’s friendly with Germany in Berlin and the surgery he required on his dislocated shoulder is set to keep him out of Arsenal contention for the next three months.

Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Friday: “There should be compensation, of course. I believe at the moment it is a subject studied by Fifa.

“There have been some agreements and the overall issue is about how the players can be paid by the club and play for somebody else. That is a basic way of thinking.”

The England FA insures all players on international duty and up to STG100,000 (RM550,000) per week can be paid out to clubs by the insurers.
Arsenal could claim STG50,000 for the first two weeks Walcott is absent, and STG100,000 per week thereafter.
