Arsenal provide update on Rob Holding ahead of Southampton clash
Arsenal have revealed Rob Holding’s condition following the injury he suffered in the clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford last week.
The Gunners were troubled by injuries to key players for much of Arsene Wenger’s reign at the club with several fans complaining that some change had to be made following the arrival of Unai Emery.
The club’s medical staff appears to have improved its practices and policies so far this season with few players sustaining injuries.
Even so, Arsenal have been hit by some major injury blows already and following the season-ending ankle injury for Danny Welbeck, another star has been added to the list of players who will be out for the rest of the campaign.
That man is Rob Holding, who suffered a knee injury in the clash with Manchester United last week.
Following the game, the Gunners announced that Holding was set for an operation on his knee and ahead of the clash with Southampton, the club has confirmed that the Englishman has now undergone a successful procedure.
Indeed, Holding’s surgery was held on Thursday as Arsenal played against Qarabag in the Europa League.
“Left knee. Successful anterior cruciate ligament repair surgery on Thursday.” the club’s update said
