It has been revealed that Unai Emery arranged a Facetime chat between the Arsenal players and Danny Welbeck before taking the field against Wolves at the Emirates yesterday. “We talked to him before the game in the meeting,” Bernd Leno revealed. “We had a FaceTime session with him.”
“It was very good, we wanted to win for him. We all are sorry for him for his injury, and hope he will have a good recovery and to see him on the pitch because he’s an important player for the team and also in the dressing room.
“He looked very happy and I think he was happy to talk to us because he is still a big part of our team and we will support him to have a good time when he is injured.
“That is a big quality of the manager because he always wants to have a team not just one player, and another player, and another player.
“This meeting was very motivating for us and for every player to play for Danny because everybody likes him.”
Well, it’s a big shame they couldn’t #WinItForDanny, and he must have wished he could have come on and helped the team to get the winner in the closing stages. Hopefully he will be out of hospital soon and maybe he will be able to get to the Bournemouth game and cheer us on to a win there…
