During the post-EL game press conference, coming after the 0-0 home tie against Sporting Lisbon, Arsenal boss Unai Emery basically talked only about the injury occurred to Danny Welbeck, a potential career-blocker tibia+fibula one: "It’s the worst news tonight, this injury. It’s clear that we are with him in these minutes. He was working well and he was having a good match. He had some chances too. His injury was with the mentality of the players. They saw it was a big injury. When you are playing football, when you are playing in competitive matches, it can happen. You don’t want it to happen but this is our profession.
Danny's now at the hospital. The news is that we are going to wait - but we think it’s a serious injury. When one player has an injury like that, every player on the pitch they look at this injury. First it’s in your mind - you think for the player. But I think the players were concentrated on the match and we forgot this injury the next minute on the pitch. But when the match finishes, the first thing they did was ask for him.
Every injury is different. This [could] be a break of something in the ankle. It’s a different injury to others. This one, anyway, is a big ankle one. Danny is a very good person. His commitment with us is very big. He’s helped us with his behaviour, with his quality and his capacity. It’s a very big injury for him, for us, for all people who like and love him as a person".
