Unai Emery refuses to be drawn on Welbeck future after serious injury

Unai Emery admitted the injury suffered by Danny Welbeck during Arsenal’s goalless draw with Sporting Lisbon had an adverse affect on his players.

The Emirates Stadium stalemate was enough to seal progression into the latter stages of the Europa League – as they now target top spot in Group E.

“Its very challenging mentally,” he said. “But sometimes it comes in the game and theres been a lot of injuries, and unfortunately for Danny hes had a few so were going to wish him the best.

A forgettable game was overshadowed by a first-half injury to England forward Welbeck, who was taken to hospital after being carried off on a stretcher.

His injury also affected the mentality of the players. They saw it was a big injury. When you are playing football, playing competitive matches, it can happen. We dont want that but this is our profession.

Many of Welbeck’s team-mates appeared distressed as he received lengthy treatment and needed an oxygen mask after what appeared to be an awkward landing as he challenged in the air for the ball.

“Both sets of teams were mentally challenged and we were able to continue with the game, but like I said, we wish him all the best and we will keep on encouraging and motivating him to get back.”

Emery, whose side extended their unbeaten run to 15 games by shutting out Sporting, conceded the situation weighed heavy on his players.

Emery admitted the mood in the changing room was sombre at half-time: Every player on the pitch looks at this injury. The first thought in your mind is for the player.

“When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen. You don’t want it to happen but this is our profession.

Now, recent reports claim that the duo could be set for a reunion at Crystal Palace, with Hodgson eyeing up a cut-price £10m bid for the man who will be out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season.

“Now he is at the hospital. The news is that we are going to wait – but we think it’s a serious injury.”

Joe Cole also shared Keowns opinion in the studio, saying: “He is so talented he has such good physical attributes but he needs senior players pushing him on telling him how good he can be because his goal scoring record is good but he sort of flits in and out of games.

Welbeck has endured a number of serious injuries during his career and it remains to be seen how long his latest setback will leave him on the sidelines.

“Someone in his camp should be pushing him on, dragging that performance out of him because he is a special talent, he scores lots of goals and it’s just a hunger get him to boiling point, I don’t think he was there tonight.”

The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and Emery would not be drawn on whether Welbeck’s future is at Arsenal.

“If I’m Aubameyang I’m looking around thinking I want to score goals like Kane or Aguero. I think he played within himself and he just needs a little push.”
