Jonas Eidevall confirms Beth Mead return to action to be near as the striker travels with the squad for the Champions League clash

Jonas Eidevall has announced that Beth Mead will accompany the Arsenal Women’s squad for Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier against Swedish team Linkoping.

Mead, who has been out of action since November due to an ACL tear, is the first among several Arsenal players to make a comeback after experiencing similar injuries.

Vivianne Miedema (in December), Leah Williamson (in April), Laura Wienroither (in May), and Teyah Goldie (in June) all faced ACL injuries like Mead, and Eidevall anticipates that her return will provide motivation for those still recovering from such injuries.

“Beth is here and she can travel with us,” Eidevall confirmed. “She is the first of our long-term injuries to return. We hope that is a turning point for more players to come back as well.

“Mentally we hope this is a lift for the other injured players too, to see her coming back, because we know this will happen again this season.

He continued: “It’s so nice when you welcome a player back because you know how hard they have fought for so many months. That starts off the pitch and then on the pitch to be able to get into this shape.”

When asked if Mead is likely to feature against Linkoping, Eidevall added: “No. She is not there yet, this comes a little too early for her. But she is not very far.”
