Arsenal’s first choice fullbacks, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin have returned to full training after having been on the sidelines for months. The Arsenal fans are happy that they have begun training with the other players and will be looking forward to seeing them back since they have missed them.
Arsenal will on Sunday face Watford and Unai Emery faced the media today at the London Colney to talk about the upcoming match and he also spoke about the injuries of Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin. Kieran Tierney was signed with this injury and Hector Bellerin got injured at the start of this year in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.
Arsenal’s boss Unai Emery has confirmed that the club will not rush to bring them back to the squad and he claims that both Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin will have to first play some Under-23 matches as Rob Holding did in the last few weeks.
“We need to look at the next steps in each training and also if we decide to play with U23s. They (Bellerin & Tierney) did this week the first time training normally with us.” Unai Emery told Football.London.
“We want the next week to take the normality training with us. After that week we can decide.”
So this has basically confirmed that the Arsenal fans might have to wait about two or three more weeks before they can see Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin playing in the senior team. The North Londoners always try to ease the integration of players that were injured by first giving them minutes in the Under-23 matches.
Unai Emery will be hoping that the two make a quick return because his team needs them as they have struggled in defence in these first four matches and his system usually relies on fullbacks to create chances for the forwards.
