‘Yesss’, ‘amazing to have you back’: Some Arsenal fans react to £50k-a-week player’s return to training

Arsenal have shared video footage of Calum Chambers in training at Colney, prompting a number of Gunners fans to welcome his return to the fold.

The 25-year-old has been out of action since last December, when he suffered a serious knee injury during the first half of the 2-1 Premier League loss to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the Gunners put out a statement on 30 September confirming that the England international was progressing well and integrating into first-team training sessions.

“Aiming to be back in full training with the squad after the October international break,” added the statement.

On Thursday, Arsenal posted a training-ground video and tagged Chambers, praising him for “looking sharp”:

Chambers also posted a training video with the caption: “Think it’s fair to say I’ve missed this…. Today was a good day.”

 

And Arsenal fans were pleased to see him back, with some leaving kind comments:

Chambers has been at Arsenal since 2014, when he joined from Southampton in a deal reportedly rising to £16million.

The £50,000-a-week defender has made 101 appearances for the Gunners, registering four goals and seven assists, and has also won three England caps.
