Great news for Arsenal: Key player makes return on Friday
Arsene Wenger has received better news on one of his stars currently on international duty after fears of an injury blow.
Despite being frequently troubled by injuries to several players over the years, the Gunners have been more fortunate than usual so far this season.
Danny Welbeck and Per Mertesacker remain the only long-term absentees even though Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud are also dealing with chronic set-backs.
Hector Bellerin was left out of the Spanish national team’s senior squad for this international break but he was called upon to feature for his country’s U-21 side.
The 21-year-old went down with what appeared to be an ankle problem after 88 minutes of action in Spain’s 3-0 victory over San Marino on Wednesday.
And as reported by AS, the Spaniard could not be withdrawn since Spain had already made their three substitutions.
However, Wenger will be pleased to hear that Bellerin managed to resume training with the rest of the team on Friday morning.
