Touré out with Malaria!

A crucial part of Arsenal’s defence Kolo Touré has been diagnosed with malaria. Touré is believed to have contracted the disease while on holiday in his native Ivory Coast and is unlikely to recover in time for the start of the Premier League.

Touré was immediately sent to hospital in Vienna after the club’s medical staff had noticed something. Touré is highly unlikely to suffer any long-term effects but the recovery will take two weeks to a month.

Malaria is extremely common in Africa other Premier League Stars have returned to England with the diesese. Lets hope the recovery is quick and Arsenal can get one of their better defenders back into action.
