Welbeck Out For Nine Months After Knee Surgery



The Arsenal and England striker is set to miss Euro 2016 and a huge portion of next season after a collision with Bacary Sagna during their clash with Manchester City
Arsenal have confirmed striker Danny Welbeck will be out for around nine months following surgery on his right knee.
The England international was forced off in the first half of Sunday’s draw with Manchester City following a coming together with Bacary Sagna, and will now miss Euro 2016.
The striker, formerly of Manchester United, has failed to complete 90 minutes in the Premier League thus far this season, making just 11 appearances in the top-flight.
Welbeck has scored a total of four Premier League goals in 2015-16 and now faces a lengthy lay-off in a significant blow to both the Gunners and the Three Lions.
Welbeck reacted to the news on Twitter, insisting that he “will be back stronger”.
The 25-year-old has suffered with injury problems throughout his career, and missed 12 matches in all competitions through injury last term.
Arsenal face Aston Villa in the final game of their Premier League season this Sunday and still harbour hopes of finishing second, though they will need to win and hope Tottenham lose to Newcastle to record such a finish.
I will be back stronger!
