Arteta provides Tierney fitness update: Mikel Arteta has stated that Kieran Tierney is in “excellent shape” despite the fact that the defender was taken out of Friday’s friendly match in Germany during the first half of the match.
The knee injury forced the left-back to miss the latter part of the previous season, and he was only able to play for the first half of our victory over Nurnberg. After the game, Arteta admitted that it was part of the plan to ease the Scotland international back into action. At the time, the Gunners were already down 2-0, so it seemed like one problem after another at that moment. However, Arteta revealed that it was part of the strategy after the game.
The manager remarked, “He’s pretty good,” regarding the employee.
“He’s been putting in a lot of work in the gym. Given that he had been out for well over three months at this point, we felt it was important to provide him with a thorough warm-up, play the first half an hour of the game, and then remove him from the game.
Therefore, he was in healthy condition, and there are no problems with it.
