The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping that it will make him a bit more mobile…
Per Mertesacker has been unavailable for selection at Arsenal so far this season, owing to an injury that he picked up during the summer.
Arsene Wenger revealed in July that the German would be back within months, rather than weeks – and 4 months later, it would appear that he is beginning to step up his comeback.
A long-term injury blow is always tough to recover from, but Mertesacker has now revealed the secret weapon that he is using to return to full fitness – yoga.
The German veteran has revealed on Twitter, alongside a few images, that he is using the practice as a means of growing his fitness after a long spell on the sidelines.
See the Tweet below…
