Socceroos monitoring Arzani injury

Sydney: Football Federation Australia (FFA) performance staff have been in contact with medical staff at Celtic FC, and with Daniel Arzani directly, to monitor his current injury situation. 

Striker Arzani is due for further investigations and a review with a knee specialist in Europe early next week, which will determine the full extent of his injury and the prognosis moving forward.

Socceroos head coach Graham Arnold said: “We have great confidence in the staff at Celtic FC to manage Daniel’s injury appropriately. FFA’s performance team will continue to liaise closely with Celtic and Daniel to provide Daniel with whatever assistance he requires.”

The 19-year-old, who turned heads at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, went down clutching his knee barely 20 minutes into his first game for Celtic against Dundee on Wednesday.

Arzani, who signed for English champions Manchester City before being sent on loan to Celtic, is set to miss Australia's friendlies against Korea Republic and Lebanon later this month.

The Socceroos, however, will be hoping the talented player will be fit for their defence of the AFC Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates on January 5-February 1.
