Vieira to be fit in time for pre-season return

Fabio Vieira may have been ruled out of the Under-21 European Championships due to injury but Arsenal have confirmed that he should be fine in the next two weeks.

The Portuguese midfielder was due to captain his country in Georgia and Romania but was withdrawn from the squad yesterday following a medical assessment.

“I tried everything to be ready to play for my country,” Fabio told Arsenal.com.

“I love to play for Portugal, but, unfortunately, it was not possible. I didn’t feel on top to play and help the team and the medical staff agreed.

“The most important thing is my health and this precaution was taken to reduce any risks. Now is the time to rest and be 100 per cent ready for pre-season, and next season.”

Vieira arrived at Arsenal last summer with a foot problem and wasn’t able to participate in any of the club’s pre-season friendlies. He later had to feel his way into the season via game time with Arsenal’s academy youngsters and minutes in the Europa League. 

It’s good to hear his current issue – which the club have not been specific about – isn’t serious. He really needs a strong summer to carry momentum into the 23/24 campaign.

Viery true.

Pre season could be huge for Fabio so it’s important he’s around to contribute.

I wonder what would happen if we let Xhaka and Partey leave and failed to sign either one of Rice, Lavia or Caicedo – not beyond the realms of possibility given our transfer history in recent years under Kroenke

You mentioned the ‘P’ word.

He should be loaned out or sold outrightly.

Agreed dreadful player so light weight and anonymous in almost every game he played for us. Needs a good meal for a start.
No fight or desire so out of place in team.

Cranky Colin

I can’t get my head around this guy.
Came with a fanfare…..and once free of injury, he had sketchy performances to say the least.
I was at the Southampton game towards the end of the season at home, no one was good, I accept, but he was atrocious. Can’t remember, when he was subbed off but I think that’s what happened.
I mean, where does this lad fit in potentially?
I’m lost on this one.

To be fair he never really got into a rhythm with sporadic playing time. There were flashes but he needs to up his game because this season was all very Dani Ceballos.

My suspicion is if we’d known how far into a title race we’d be we might have allocated our resources differently last summer. Vieira was probably expected to spend a year acclimatising to England, learning the system and providing a decent Europa League / cup rotation to Odegaard before exploding and becoming “useful” next season, just how Bernado Silva, Grealish, Rodri etc did at City. I’m looking forward to seeing him after a full pre-season.

Maybe not a bad thing he misses that competition because he didn’t get a full preseason with us last year. The more time he has with the squad this summer the better.

Alberto Balsam Mendez Rodriguez

That’s it, the lad needs a pre-season with us, hopefully to help figure out which position he should grow into.

Hope I’m wrong but I haven’t seen anything to convince me he’s the real deal. Nothing to suggest he’s the next Bruno Fernandez or Ruben Neves. Great free kick onto Elneny’s head at Oxford though. Arteta’s been bigging him up which should retain some of his value.
