Arsene Wenger‘s love for Abou Diaby seems to transcend rational thinking.
Diaby has made only 22 appearances in the past 4 seasons, and somehow Wenger is said to be considering offering the Frenchman a new contract.
Diaby made the lone appearance for the Gunners this season in September’s Capital One clash against Southampton, but Wenger clearly sees something in him that makes him hang on to him.
“I had a chat with him and told him how I can envisage the future,” Wenger said. “He has to make a decision. Of course he understands completely that he has to perform and to show that he can be present on a consistent way.
“I will see where we go from there. I wouldn’t like to go into details, we have to meet again to see where we go from what I told him. It has to be linked a little bit with his presence.”
