Arsenal Plan to Head Out of Europe Soon

arsenal will camp in dubai

Arsenal have announced that the club will be heading out for a five-day training camp during the fast-approaching international break.

Besides a host of training sessions in Dubai, there will be a friendly match with Al-Nasr Dubai SC by 6pm on March 26.

The last time both sides met was in November 1976 when goals from Malcolm Macdonald, John Matthews and John Radford earned the Gunners a 3-1 victory.

It will be a big honour to the Gunners as the match will be part of activities to mark the launch of the newly-refurbished Al Maktoum Stadium.

There will also be visits to the Rashid Paediatric Centre and the palace of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Minister of Finance.

Reacting to the planned outing, Unai Emery stated that it would be nice to have a feel of a different weather.

He said: “It will be great to get some warm weather training and break up the usual routine as we enter the final stage of the season. The facilities in Dubai are fantastic and it will be an honour to be part of the formal opening ceremony for the new stadium.”

As usual, Emirates Airline will assist in conveying the team to the far east while also connecting fans in the United Arab Emirates to the club.

Once the Europa League last-16 second leg tie with Rennes is over by Thursday, Arsenal will have no competitive match until they face Newcastle United on April Fools Day.

We suffered a 3-1 loss in France last week and will be looking to overturn that deficit to enable us qualify for the quarter finals.

Hopefully, our 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday will be a catalyst to achieving a remarkable comeback.
