Arsenal loanee Tyreece John-Jules has admitted to Doncaster’s official website that he was devastated to suffer a second lengthy injury of the season earlier this year, but insisted that he feels that he has returned stronger.
It has been a turbulent season for John-Jules. When he has been available, he has looked superb for the League One side.
However, he has had to endure two long periods on the sidelines due to injury. He has only just returned from around three months out with a hamstring problem.
But he did not need long to get back amongst the goals. The 20-year-old Gunners loanee produced a superb finish after coming off the bench in only his second game back on Tuesday.
And following the game, John-Jules outlined just how difficult it has been at times, before insisting that he is now in a good place.
“It’s been a frustrating few months for me watching the games from home and not being able to effect things,” he told Doncaster’s official website.
“It’s my second big injury of the season and I was devastated but I had it in my mind to come back stronger.”
It could be a big few weeks for John-Jules. His goalscoring record with Donny is impressive. And a couple of his strikes have been outstanding.
If he can stay fit and bag a few more before the campaign concludes, he may send a message to Mikel Arteta ahead of pre-season.
It may be too soon for the youngster to be amongst the first-team fold with Arsenal. But he certainly has an opportunity to make a statement before he returns to the Emirates.
