Abou Diaby makes 45 minute return for Arsenal U21s [Pictures & best tweets]
After 13 months out injured, Arsenal’s French midfielder Abou Diaby made a return to action.
The 27 year old star was close to retiring in recent years but thankfully Diaby made his return in Arsenal’s U21 clash against Chelsea.
Some pictures of him in action can be seen here, along with some of the best tweets concerning his return.
Diaby came off at the half time whistle as planned.
That scar on Diaby’s knee is frightening, dread to think what he’s been through, poor guy. Could’ve been one of the best, but he’s only 27.

HT. Arsenal 1 Chelsea 0. Arsenal lead through Bellerin's goal. Diaby composed. Ajayi and Hayden also impressive.
