Arsenal prospect Barazite returns to training

Arsenal have welcomed Dutch prospect Nacer Barazite back to full training after dislocating his shoulder on debut against Blackburn Rovers last month.

"I felt so bad, I was in some pain and I could have cried," he told Arsenal.com. "Not tears for my shoulder but because I was going to go off. I was there, in the first-team and I was being forced off.

"I had been nervous at the start but I got a few good touches in and I was feeling comfortable. I was on for 20 minutes but it could have been more. I was disappointed to be missing out on game time with the first-team."

The attacking midfielder added: "The day after, I was supposed to go back to Holland for my Christmas holiday, but I couldn't go! I needed to go and see the specialist, to have an MRI scan to see how bad it was.

"Luckily the person I saw said that there was no big damage around the shoulder, to the muscles and other parts, so I didn't need to have an operation. I would have been out for three months if I needed one so thankfully without it I was out for only one month."
