Arsenal fans were voicing their excitement after Shkodran Mustafi updated them on the latest news with regards to the injury he suffered against Bournemouth.
In a post on Twitter, the German revealed that he has already returned to training and even joked about Mesut Ozil helping him in his recovery. The news will come as a relief to head coach Mikel Arteta, who following the game against the Cherries, sounded less than optimistic about the fitness issue (via BBC).
One fan couldn’t hide his excitement at the news:
Great news! Looking forward to seeing you back in contention.
