Injury expert warns Arsenal man needs to feature in more pre-season games
Kieran Tierney is one of the quality players in Arsenal’s current squad, but the Scot has a serious fitness issue.
He often suffers from injuries that make him unavailable for a long time at the club.
This is one of the reasons why they added Nuno Tavares and Oleksandr Zinchenko to their squad in the last two summer transfer windows.
He did not complete the last campaign after being sidelined from March until its end.
He has returned to training this pre-season, but he is still not consistent and he suffered a ‘little problem’ again.
That means he won’t have a full pre-season like everyone else and injury expert Ben Dinnery thinks that’s not a good thing.
He tells Football Insider: “Players need to be integrated into pre-season games.
“But if Arteta is to be believed, this is certainly more of a precautionary measure than something more serious.
“He is expected to join the team this week and train for their next game. That suggests it was more of a minor issue that they didn’t want to take any chances with.
“If his absence extends for perhaps a week or two, then that becomes a concern. Every period of time you miss in this training block could impact the upcoming season.
Just the opinion of Arsenal
Tierney’s numerous injury problems could eventually rob him of his career at Arsenal as they may find it difficult to give him a new contract if it continues like this.
The Scot is a great player, but he needs to keep playing to prove his fitness to us and his manager.
