“He is not feeling well now” – National team manager provides worrying Injury update about Arsenal’s midfielder –
Solbakken recently updated that the former Real Madrid midfielder hasn’t joined his side’s training sessions ahead of their fixtures during the international break. Instead, Odegaard is currently under the supervision of his club side’s medical team.
While talking about the player ahead of the game, here’s what Solbakken had to say about the same on TV2 (via Express):
“We are in regular dialogue with him and (Mikel) Arteta and Arsenal’s health sector, as it is called in Danish. Nothing has been decided there, so there is still hope. They are the ones who have had ‘hands on him’ up until now, and they are in dialogue.”
The manager of Norway’s national team further added:
“The possibilities of Ødegaard coming to Norway in one way or another are good. He is not feeling well now. Now it is necessary to get a final decision on whether he can take part in both or one of the games. We will certainly see him in Norway, either as a player or “fourth coach”.
Odegaard has been in great form so far this season, scoring three goals in seven games in all competitions for the Gunners.
