An Arsenal player named Oleksandr Zinchenko responded to the Takehiro Tomiyasu news on Instagram. Zinchenko publicly supported Tomiyasu on social media after Arsenal made the announcement of his knee surgery yesterday.
Tomiyasu suffered an injury during the Gunners’ game last week against Sporting Lisbon and had to leave the field after just nine minutes. After the game, he was seen needing crutches, which alarmed Arsenal supporters.
Tomiyasu will be out for the remainder of the season, it has been determined.
Takehiro Tomiyasu made an outstanding Premier League debut last year, but this year, as Arsenal’s right-back, he has primarily been Ben White’s understudy. Nonetheless, he has constantly demonstrated his ability to be a dependable player for the Gunners, and his absence for the remainder of the season will be a significant loss for the group.
Tomiyasu underwent surgery after suffering a serious injury to his right knee, Arsenal said Tuesday. He won’t likely come back until the preseason before the next season. The team’s supporters are heartbroken for Tomiyasu, a fan favorite at the Emirates Stadium, and they are praying for a quick recovery. Even his teammate Zinchenko used Instagram to express his support for the foreign player, posting a picture of him with the caption, “Come back stronger brother.”
