Contrary to what we all feared would end up being a long term injury, Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista has publicly given us a positive update.

The Brazilian international fell awkwardly on his ankle in the final minutes of our friendly match against Manchester City in Sweden last Sunday and had to be taken off the pitch on a stretcher. In fact, he left the arena on crutches and in a protective boot.

The incident sent cold down the nerves of many Arsenal fans with Wenger even suggesting that the player may have damaged his ligament. It was then expected that he would be absent for a lengthy period but Gabriel through his Instagram account revealed that he is getting better while also stating that the injury is not as serious as we earlier thought. The picture he posted on social media network this morning can be seen below.

This is good news for us (if Gabriel’s claim is true) because we would not need to wait for long before welcoming him back to the first team.

Elsewhere, there are reports claiming that Arsenal are trying to hide the severity of the defender’s injury so as to make it easier for them to get new signings before the summer transfer window shuts. If clubs get to know that the injury is a serious one, it will enable them figure out that we are desperately in need of a defender and that will make them place big price tags on any of their defenders we show interest in.

We do not know if the injury is truly minor or it’s just a tactics as speculated. Whatever it is, the truth shall surely unveil itself. All we pray for is a speedy recovery for him.
