Rob Holding returned as the Arsenal captain when the team faced off Nottingham Forest. He was out of commission for ten months due to an injury. Also, he described it as a dream comeback. He scored Arsenal’s second goal.
The game ended with the score 5-0 in favor of the Gunners. The 24-year-old played the entire 90 minutes for the first time since he ruptured a ligament in his left knee. He suffered the injury in a game against Manchester United in December, according to sports betting records.
It was his first time as the captain of the squad. That’s why it was memorable for him. Also, it was a proud moment for him to score while wearing the captain’s armband. Reiss Nelson placed a good ball for a Holding header.
Rob Holding Returns
It was a new experience for Rob Holding. He never got a long-term injury. He thanked the club and the medical staff. Also, he credited the fitness people for allowing him to play again. They supported him throughout his therapy.
It is not just Holding who returned last Tuesday for Arsenal. Hector Bellerin played his first game after recovering from an ACL injury. He assisted Joe Willock for the team’s third goal. Holding and Bellerin trained together in the gym during their recovery period.
Also, he credited Danny Welbeck, who also had a long injury. Welbeck used to train with Holding and Bellerin when he was still in Arsenal, according to sports betting prediction sources.
Kieran Tierney played his first game for Arsenal as well. Also, it was his first time on the pitch after a double hernia operation. Outside the field, he bonds with the team in the dressing room. Holding told betting odds sites that he and Tierney already are getting along well.
