Arsenal fans put rivalry aside following Oxlade-Chamberlain injury news

Most of the time, fans who witness their players move to a rival club wash their hands of said footballer.

The same thing happened when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left Arsenal to sign for Liverpool last summer.

The midfielder spent six years at the Gunners but after dropping down the pecking order, he sought pastures new at Anfield.

It took time for the 24-year-old to find his stride, but he eventually became an integral member of Jurgen Klopp’s team.

During the Reds’ Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma, Oxlade-Chamberlain was struck down with a serious knee injury that ended his season.

It was a devastating blow for the England international, who missed out on the European final, as well as the World Cup in Russia.

Many assumed that after undergoing surgery Oxlade-Chamberlain would be back in action by the winter, but on Wednesday, Klopp revealed to the media that the midfielder is unlikely to feature at all throughout the 2018-19 campaign.

The German coach admitted that the player and club were aware of this from the get-go, but Oxlade-Chamberlain wanted the news to stay quiet to prevent any distractions during the end of the season.

Since the devastating blow was revealed, Arsenal fans have put rivalry aside to wish their former player well.
