Danny Welbeck Issues Determined Message Following Ankle Surgery

Having sustained a broken ankle during Arsenal’s goalless draw against Sporting CP in the Europa League last week, Danny Welbeck issued a determined message via social media on Tuesday evening after allegedly completing two operations.

Welbeck has previously endured lengthy spells on the sidelines due to an array of significant injuries, and as the attacker was in a relatively rich vain of form before his latest set-back, the 27-year-old has made it his personal mission to return ‘stronger than ever before.’ 

Sharing a picture of himself resting on crutches with a grin and a thumbs up on his Twitter account, ‘Dat Guy’ spiritedly expressed: 

“Back home… Thanks for all the love and support. No doubt I will be back stronger than ever before. Recovery grind starts now” 

A mainstay in the England fold, Welbeck was named in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad ahead of two international meetings against USMT and Croatia, although, of course, the adaptable striker has since withdrawn.

In 14 competitive appearances this season for the Gunners, Welbeck instinctively found the back of the net five times, alongside a solitary assist. A trailblazing weapon in the north-Londoners’ armoury, Unai Emery, as well as the club’s avid fans, will certainly be hoping that he has a swift, easy, and painless recovery.
