A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the news that Bernd Leno’s injury is not as bad as previously feared.
The Gunners goalkeeper was forced off on a stretcher during the Gunners’ 2-1 defeat by Brighton at the weekend after injuring his leg.
Leno leapt for the ball and landed awkwardly under a challenge from Brighton’s Neal Maupay, and when being carried off, he was seen sitting up and reprimanding the Seagulls forward.
A lot of people feared that he had suffered an ACL injury, but on Tuesday, Arsenal announced that the 28-year-old had sustained a moderate ligament sprain to his knee.
Leno would be aiming for a return to full training in four to six weeks, added the communication.
The player himself himself took to Twitter to confirm that he would be back soon, which delighted Arsenal fans on the social media platform.
Here is some of the reaction to the update from North London:
Thankfully not as bad as we thought for Leno
