Wenger calm over Arsenal right-back issue

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists there is no crisis in regards to the current right-back situation at the club.

With Bacary Sagna sidelined for three months with a broken leg, Wenger is without a proven player in that position but insists that the likes of Carl Jenkinson, Laurent Koscielny and Johan Djourou who can all be deployed on the right side of defence.

"We have Jenkinson, we have Koscielny - who has been educated as a right-back - we have Djourou who can play right-back," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"Koscielny was always a right-back, so he can play there.

"Even (Andre) Santos can play there, I think, so we have plenty of possibilities."
