Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has given a fresh update about the injury, which has prevented him from featuring for the north London club so far this season. The 24-year old is pushing himself through the pain barrier in a desperate bid to make a return to the Gunners’ first team, as per the Metro.
The England international has put in lot of hard works in order to make a return after a brilliant debut season at the Emirates as he bagged Arsenal’s winning goal in the FA Cup quarter-final against his former side Manchester United.
“It’s slow and steady but it’s coming along,” Welbeck told the club’s official website.
“It’s difficult to see the lads when you’re still in the gym, doing double days, but once I get back out on the pitch and start running I will be much happier.
“It’s a difficult period for me but I’m looking forward to coming back strong.
“I want to get back on the pitch, keep on improving, keep training and keep fit – that’s the main thing. I just want to get back to playing football.
“I’m trying to build to muscle and it’s hard, but it’s something that I’ve grasped with two hands and I’m really looking forward to my return.”
Welbeck has not played for Arsenal since the club’s goalless draw at home to Chelsea in April. With suggestions the former Man United striker will be out until March, any further setback could hamper his chances of being in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for next year’s European Championships in France.
