Messages of support pour in for Welbeck

Messages of support pour in as Emery admits Welbeck injury is serious

November 9, 2018 By Ali M.
The Arsenal attacker was given oxygen and stretchered off the pitch after suffering a nasty ankle injury in the 0-0 draw with Sporting CP.

Thursday's Europa League clash with Sporting CP saw Danny Welbeck suffer a horific injury. Arsenal earned a goalless draw and thus secured progression, but the only thing on everyone's mind was the English attacker.

After jumping to meet a cross, the Three Lions ace twisted his ankle while landing and was left in excruciating pain. The players and referee immediately knew it was serious, with the medics rushing in to aid him before stretchering him off to a standing ovation.

The 27-year-old required oxygen, with Unai Emery confirming that the attacker was immediately taken to the hospital. His team-mates were left visibly distraught after witnessing the injury, with the likes of Guendozi being unable to conceal his shock.

Welbeck, who was replaced by Aubameyang in the Emirates Stadium draw, received messages of support from across the board after his ankle injury. Tweets from fans, team-mates, and pundits poured in for the former Man United man.

His former club also wished him a speedy recovery

This means Danny won't be participating in the upcoming international break, having been called up by Southgate to represent the Three Lions. Gareth will now have to replace Welbeck for the friendly against the USA and the crucial UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia.

This could also be the final nail in the coffin that is his Arsenal career. Emery admitted that this "difficult injury" is likely a broken ankle, which could possibly end his season.

Given that is Gunners contract expires next summer, his attempts to get a new deal in north London could have ended prematurely. The ship has also sailed on impressing other suitors should he be forced to sit out the remainder of the season.

Emery, though, did not wish to talk about the player's contract situation after this unforgettable night. He said (as per the Sun): "It is not the moment to think about [the] contract. It is the moment to think about Danny, it is a difficult problem for him and the club."
