Elneny never played under the stewardship of Arteta as the Spanish manager replaced Unai Emery in December – Emery sent Elneny on loan to Besiktas.

Some Arsenal fans were most impressed with Elneny’s response to the unfortunate news regarding the Gunners head coach.

Arteta shared an update on his situation via Twitter today.

The Spanish manager revealed that he is feeling a lot better and congratulated the Premier League for making the ‘right decision’ in suspending the league until April 3.

Arsenal were set to play Manchester City on Wednesday in the league but the game was postponed following the coronavirus outbreak in the Arsenal camp.

Elneny meanwhile, will have to play on Sunday in the Istanbul derby against Sunday as the Turkish football authorities have deemed the league safe to go ahead.

The matches will be played behind closed doors over the weekend but there are no plans to suspend football.
