Reports are out claiming that injured Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck is confident he will be back in action for the Gunners in the New Year.
The 25-year-old England international underwent knee surgery in September after missing the start of the season with a series of complaints, but is adamant his return to first team football is imminent.
The former Manchester United star even suggested he would be ‘flying’ when he finally returns to action.
“It is difficult. It is my first injury that has kept me out for so long. I had my operation and once that is sorted you can be out for a few more months,” Welbeck told Arsenal’s official website.
“For the first month, in a leg brace, not being able to do anything, on a machine six hours a day, it was very difficult. But you have to try and see the positives. Luckily I had my family around me, my friends came down to London and I had my brothers. It was good to have people around me and have that support.
“You wake up in the morning and know you have double sessions in the gym it is hard but you have to see the positive side and I have learnt a lot more being injured on how to look after your body and prevent injuries. I have to see the positive side and hopefully when I come back, I will be flying.”
