Tomiyasu breaks silence after being sidelined for the rest of the season

Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu has broken his silence after being ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Japanese defender has been injury-prone since he moved to Arsenal and suffered a serious one in the Gunners’ game against Sporting Club in the Europa League.

The defender is now set to miss the rest of this season as he plans to return to preseason fit enough to help the team.

Arsenal has had a good season, but Ben White has been their starting right-back for much of the term, so Tomi hasn’t been playing many games.

His injury does not come as a surprise to many fans and observers because he has been injured often since he moved to the club.

After the latest setback, the defender posted on Instagram:

“Heads up and stay positive.

 “I believe that this is the opportunity to be a better person and player.

 “Thank you for your warm message and support. See you soon!!!”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tomiyasu has been very unlucky with injuries and this might affect his future at the club if it continues.

When he plays, he is one of our best players, but he hardly gets chances because he is usually unfit.

If this continues until the end of his contract, he is very likely not to earn a new deal at the Emirates.

  1. Yes we need him back as a very decent backup but I’m a little worried about Saliba as news from Arsenal has been rather quiet and rumours that his ‘back tweak’ could be season ending too. Obviously unconfirmed and could be BS but as I said, info is sparse.

  2. Tomiyasu is plainly a top class pure defender and flexible too, as he can play several defensive positions.
    I expect him to be sold though at the end of next season simply because a very often injured player cannot be relied upon.
    No other reason, but unless he can stay fit next year, I see him leaving in the summer of 2024. I hope he CA now stay fit next seaoson but TBH, I MUCH doubt he will.

  3. The premier league is the toughest league in the world and unless you are a Granit Xhaka, it may take your body considerable time to get use to.

    This kid brings great work ethic from the Japanese culture, he was one of the first players to return from the world cup before his scheduled time.

    Tomi as he’s affectionately calls is a solid young defender, want to wish him a speedy recovery to kick on for the next campaign.

    1. He is literally made of granite. Xhaka is like a terminator. He doesn’t get, he doesn’t get tired, and he absolutely will not stop, EVER, until he scores or gets booked.

  4. I’m a big fan of Tomiyasu and believe he is as important to us defensively and Trossard is to us offensively, being able to cover any of the positions at the back not just adequately but excellently. He’ll be back.
