Arsenal club medical professional Gary O’Driscoll has actually confessed that defender Kieran Tierney missed out on the last 12 video games of the season after a freak injury – continual after he left the dressing space showers too rapidly after stopping working to inform the physio group that he had actually gotten a hyper-extension knee issue previously in the season.
Tierney, who signed up with Arsenal from Celtic for £24.5m in 2019, has actually developed himself as one of the Gunners’ finest gamers given that his relocation from north of the border.
Injury issues have actually beleaguered his advancement to some degree, although he still stays Arsenal’s first-choice left-back in spite of the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is anticipated to star in midfield.
Yet on Amazon’s brand-new series Arsenal: All or Nothing, the Scot was exposed to have actually used for 5 video games with a knee injury he suffered in a tie versus Wolves – prior to stopping working to discuss it to the group’s rehab personnel.
“The Wolves game, he had a hyper-extension injury, finished the game, didn’t mention it and then played the next five games with no problems whatsoever,” Gunners club medical professional Gary O’Driscoll stated as communicated by the Daily Mirror.
“But he then walked out of the shower on Thursday after training, turned a corner, bent his knee and felt the knee collapse.”
With Nuno Tavares coming in for him rather, the Scot’s lack was felt as Tavares supervised the bulk of Arsenal’s three-game losing streak towards completion of last season as they wound up stopping working to get approved for the Champions league.
And the Gunners will be hoping that the star will have the ability to put his pride behind him and report the next injury he sustains so he doesn’t lose out on their Champions League charge this season.
