We’ve already reportedly got a case of swine flu in Sale but maybe it’s set to spread to Old Trafford given the precautions Arsenal have gone to this week in regards to their Mexican striker, Carlos Vela.

“It looks to be a massive problem so we asked him to stay at home on Monday,” said Wenger. “He wasn’t allowed at the training ground. It was down to him having a visit from Mexican friends who came to see him last week and who came to our training ground. It’s a major problem for Mexico.”

Ok ok, he’s been given the all-clear, but seriously, just how obsessed are we with this bloody swine flu at the moment?!
