The young Aussie is well and truly on the road to recovery

After injuring his ACL on debut for Celtic, Manchester City loanee Daniel Arzani is nearing full fitness and shared footage on social media that suggests he's still as sharp as ever on the ball.

The Socceroos attacker has been sidelined since October and after undergoing surgery in Spain late last year, returned temporarily to Manchester as he enters the final stretch of his recovery.

Training alone for the time being, Arzani hasn't taken long to reacquaint himself with the round ball if these Instagram videos are anything to go by.


Slowly but surely getting there. Thank you everyone for the support 💪🏽

The 20-year-old is expected to return to Scotland for pre-season duties with Celtic having joined the Hoops on a two-year loan deal from City.

Since Arzani's injury, Celtic have appointed a new coach in the form of Neil Lennon after the departure of Brendan Rodgers. 

After turning heads at the 2018 World Cup with the Socceroos, Arzani missed Australia's recent Asian Cup campaign with coach Graham Arnold recently declaring he's keen to deploy the attacker in the Olyroos once he's fit again. 

While the injury has been an early set back in what promises to be an exciting career for Arzani, the Aussie has stressed the need to take his recovery slowly.

"I’m having the best treatment and have been looked after really well with the rehab so far,” Arzain told The World Game in January. 

"I’m looking forward to getting back stronger and better.

"I’ll get this done and make sure I do it properly because I’ve got to ensure it’s not something that hurts me in the future."
