With Arsenal not giving out too much information on Martin Ødegaard’s recent injury, it’s the Norwegian national team who have been responsible for updates.
Earlier this week, we’ve seen manager Stale Solbakken made it clear that was just a ‘normal’ issue and ‘not career-threatening’.
Now the coach spoke again, this time quoted by Eurosport, saying he just had a conversation with the Arsenal player.
“Now I’m coming from a three-quarter hour talk with Martin. He is getting better and better, and then he gradually steps up.”
“It has been more or less three weeks without any special training, so it is important to take it step by step. So both he and Arsenal probably hope that he is available for the Brentford match.”
Ødegaard’s last game for Arsenal was in the EFL Cup clash against West Ham United, when he played for a few minutes in the Hammers’ 3-1 win.
Since then, he missed out in four of the Gunners’ matches, with the Emirates side not making it very clear what the problem is.
The Norwegian updates should then come out as good news for Arsenal fans, who hope to have their captain back in the team as soon as possible.
Following the international break, Arsenal will be back on the pitch on the 25h of November, when they play Brentford, maybe with Ødegaard available.
