Rob Holding couldn’t have written his fairytale return any better

Rob Holding has been out of action since last year and he made a return in the Carabao cup yesterday. It was a fine display from the 24 year old who got a goal few seconds after getting the captain’s armband.

Speaking about his return, he said: “It’s been a long process and there’s been lot of long days in the gym with me and Hector, but I couldn’t have written it any better myself to make that comeback. The way it panned out was just brilliant”

“When I got told I was vice captain I was over the moon, so when Mesut came off and passed the armband over I was so happy. Then it went perfectly again, Reiss put a great ball in and I managed to get my head on it.

The boss, Unai Emery also had this to say about Rob Holding; “Perfect to have more options with the centre backs. After, his spirit is positive, like the minutes he played tonight.

“Every day in training, he helps us for having more performances like a team and after he needed to take minutes, take confidences and I think tonight, the first match after playing with the under-23s for him is perfect. He was a little tired at the end of the match but he scored and I think he is happy tonight. And we are happy for him”

Rob Holding made his return nine months after injuring his knee in a tie against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Arsenal head to Old Trafford on Monday to play Manchester United and he will look forward to participating in the match.
