The Gunners star suffered a horrific injury during the Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon
Danny Welbeck has undergone two successful operations to fix his broken ankle, Arsenal have announced.
The Gunners forward suffered a gruesome injury in Thursday’s Europa League draw with Sporting Lisbon and faces a lengthy lay-off from football.
“Danny has undergone a second planned operation on his right ankle,” the Premier League club said in a statement on their official website.
“Both procedures went well, without complications. Danny will now recuperate and start his rehabilitation. It’s too early to say how long this will take.
“Everyone at the club will now be providing Danny with the best possible treatment and support in order to make him fit again as soon as possible.”
Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno revealed Welbeck shared a FaceTime call with his team-mates before Sunday’s draw with Wolves.
Head coach Unai Emery arranged for Welbeck to speak to the players as they prepared for the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
