Boss - Carl has been patient, resilient

It has been a long road back for Carl Jenkinson, but the England international is finally ready to make his on-pitch return on Friday night.

The Arsenal right-back has been out of action since January with a knee injury, but will feature for the under-23s against Southampton at Meadow Park.

“He will be playing on Friday night and after that it’s down to getting a little bit more competition,” Arsene Wenger said. “He has been out for a very long time but he’s available again to compete now.
“It has been very tough for him because he had the knee and after, the shoulders. You think it’s endless at that age, you need to be patient. 
“He has been patient, resilient and he has a fantastic mentality - he has worked very hard to come back. He had the support of everybody here at the club and I think he has done extremely well.”
