Arsenal supporters will be delighted following the latest positive news surrounding goalkeeper Bernd Leno’s injury.
Leno was stretchered off in the 2-1 defeat against Brighton in the first half after a collision with Neal Maupay which caused some controversy. The player went for a 50/50 and collided with Leno whilst the German was still in the air, which caused him to fall awkwardly.
Many would have been worried about the length of the injury, but there is positive news as it turns out he sustained only a moderate ligament sprain during the match and he will be aiming to return to full training in four to six weeks.
This is very good news for the club as many would have thought he would have been out for much longer, indeed Goal reported that he could have been missing for up to a year. The news means he could still have some involvement in the last few fixtures, but if not it is good that he will be fit and raring to go for next season.
Next season will be huge for the club as it will be Mikel Arteta’s first full campaign in charge, so many will be expecting an improvement on the current campaign. He needs his best players and Leno is one of them so that will be a great boost for him.
The news is definitely a positive and if he can return before the season ends, it will be an added boost.
