Danny Welbeck expects to make his return for Arsenal in the early weeks of 2016.
The 24-year-old promising striker who left Manchester United for Arsenal last year for a £ 16 million fee has been following a knee injury and this season also still didn’t appeared for the gunners. But the youngster has revealed, recovery process is going pretty much well and hopes to return to the first team at the start of the New Year.
Given the form of makeshift striker Theo Walcott, a tough competition awaits for him, getting back to the first eleven will not be easy. Walcott is surly in fine form with four goals this season for Arsenal and three for England.
Welbeck is not worried about Walcott’s form, he rather focusing on his much awaited return and enjoying his time getting out of the leg brace.
“It’s difficult to put an exact date on [a return] – around the New Year. After I had the operation I was in a leg brace for about four weeks, which wasn’t easy. I had to do a lot of machine work, about six hours a day.” He stated.
“It’s good to finally be out of the brace now and walking. It feels like I’m getting that little bit closer to getting back out on the pitch.”
Since his move to Arsenal, Welbeck has scored eight competitive goals.
