Not surprised: Kieran Tierney suffers serious injury on loan at Real Sociedad

The decision to send Kieran Tierney out on loan to Real Sociedad in the last transfer window was met with opposition from some Arsenal fans who believed the defender still had a valuable role to play at the club. However, it appears that Mikel Arteta had different plans and opted to focus on other defensive options.

For several months, Tierney appeared to have overcome his injury problems and was enjoying a period of fitness. Unfortunately, he has once again suffered a setback. According to The Sun, Tierney sustained a hamstring injury during Sociedad’s match against Athletic Bilbao over the weekend. This injury could sideline him for up to ten weeks.

Tierney’s history of recurring injuries played a role in him losing his first-team spot at Arsenal. This latest injury is undoubtedly a setback in his efforts to revive his career and potentially secure a move away from the Emirates in the future.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tierney is a talented boy who deserves regular game time, but his injury problems could rob him of his career.

The Scotsman needs to start spending more time away from the treatment table to get his career back at a top club.

Sociedad will not consider making his move permanent if he has an injury-prone spell with them and he might struggle to get back in the team when he returns.

  1. This is what happens to him if he plays 5 matches straight, his body just breaks. He’s done that every single season (apart from last season When MA didn’t play him often), at Celtic, at Arsenal.. Boy wasn’t meant to play 50 matches a season.

  2. Surely he will be devastated and so too am I, The Arsenal loane seems to have found a new lease on life and has been nothing but immense under temporary management.

    Had watched Real Sociedad vs Inter Millan where the Scottish single handedly ran them ragged for the entire time he was on the pitch, peppering the six yard boxes with crosses after crosses, reducing the Milan club to not a sniff at goal.

    Inter Millan was able to brought themselves level only after Tierney left the pitch, his performance was of such that some fans shouting Roberto Carlos, speedy recovery son.

  3. Something must be said about Kieran Tierney physic. Modern games are faster and relentless. His body is a bit too muscular for his role and his style of play. He is overweight with muscles. He can have those in a colder climate as Scotland but it will break him in a warmer climate. He needs to lay off meat by 30% to 40% in order for his bones to carry lean muscles for his all action play.

  4. I wonder if MA gets an apology from some of our complaining fans?

    Because yet again, he’s proven right with a player leaving Arsenal.

  5. The amount of stick that Arteta got for bypassing Tierney
    Regardless of tactics JT wasn’t getting the game time and it’s possible that the coaching and medical staff were aware of his unfortunate inability to stay fit for very long.
    He has shown great character and I’m sorry that his career will be stop start. He deserves better

  6. I hope he has a good recovery as I think that he’s a world class player and when he is fit he deserves as much time as possible on the pitch he’s a class player and is still young enough to play at the top level of football.
