Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has been ruled out of action for the next two months after undergoing surgery.
The 22-year-old has struggled with niggling injuries and he suffered a setback in the league match against Manchester United earlier in the month. After consulting with specialists, Smith Rowe underwent a surgery to fix the problem, and will now need two months to return to full fitness.
“Following a significant setback at our Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford on September 4, and after further specialist consultations and discussions with our medical team, Emile underwent surgery to repair a damaged tendon in his groin.”
“This successful surgery took place in London in the past few days and Emile’s rehabilitation programme is already underway. We are hopeful that Emile will return to full training in December.”
“Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Emile to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
