England manager Roy Hodgson has stated that Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck isn’t as injured as previously feared after the former Manchester United man limped off the pitch during the Three Lion’s 1-0 win over Estonia, Metro reports.
Arsenal are currently in an injury crisis and after Welbeck came off playing for his national side, many were afraid the Gunners striker will join the likes of Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Debuchy, and Olivier Giroud on the treatment table.
However, Hodgson insists that the substitutions he made were precautionary, and that Welbeck should be fit enough to star for the Gunenrs when they face Hull City this coming weekend.
“I don’t think he’s injured. He just rolled his ankle slightly and the doctors are not worried about it,” he said.
“It had to be Danny [to come off] because he turned his ankle slightly. It’s no danger and he’ll be fit [for Arsenal].”
Danny Welbeck was purchased from Manchester United in a £16million deal on transfer deadline day this past summer.
