Aaron Ramsey has withdrawn from the Welsh squad to return to Arsenal for treatment over a thigh injury.
It had been hoped that the midfielder could play in the European Championships qualifier against Slovakia tomorrow having sat out a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in midweek, but the injury hasn’t improved sufficiently for him to be considered for selection.
It’ll be a worry for Unai Emery as he keeps tabs on his players from the warm weather training base in Dubai, and the Gunners are already sweating over Nacho Monreal who didn’t make the trip because of a calf strain.
Ramsey has been in excellent form of late, and with eight games in April – including two legs against Napoli in the Europa League – Arsenal need as many players fit and available as possible.
Hopefully this isn’t anything too serious, and some common sense has been applied in allowing him to return to London, but we’ll have to wait and see what kind of update we get from the medical team in their next bulletin.
