Arsenal defender still in shock over Anfield loss

LONDON: Arsenal’s Philippe Senderos is “mentally shattered” and may not play again this season.

SunSport can reveal centreback Senderos broke down and cried after the Gunners’ Champions League 4-2 defeat at Liverpool last Tuesday.

Boss Arsene Wenger gave him a couple of days off to pull himself together but he was left out of the squad’s match against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Swiss defender was blamed for Sami Hyypia’s Kop equaliser in the Anfield defeat.

An Arsenal insider said: “Senderos seems to have gone mentally at the moment.
