Gabriel Martinelli (35)

Hopefully just a bad ankle sprain, as frustrating and annoying as the lack of continuity is that’ll be 4-6 weeks at absolute worst.

Could be like an achilles tear or something.

Don’t say that please, hopefully his trod on the ball and just twisted the ankle.

I thought he was out for 3 years with that last injury we got worried about…that he ended up walking off.

He’ll be back in a few weeks I’m sure.

Looking forward to the day we get all out ballers in the same team - Saka, Martinelli, Tierney and Partey.

Yeah I hope it’s nothing serious but flat brain Arteta taking about being gutted over what an ankle sprain? And since when do they put ur foot in a boot when u have a sprain?

Hopefully just minor ligament damage to the ankle :pray:

This sounds a lot better.

Yes, the boot is used for Achilles’ injures and ankles that get rolled.

Fingers crossed here…

If it was his Achilles he wouldn’t have been in the stands watching the game after so, im sure its just a sprain.

This :arrow_up:

He would have been in headed for an MRI and surgery pronto with an Achilles tear.

I’m hoping that the boot was precautionary. Good to see him in the stands

Happy with this but what’s up with these false positives?
Is the club being overly protective after fucking up Partey or is it Gabi himself?
Gabi did look in pain in both occasions.

I don’t know, it didn’t look that bad to me at the time, just a twisted ankle, but I guess his pain at the time made everyone think it was bad.

Glad it isn’t serious!

The #limbs :disappointed:
