Do you remember Ryo Miyaichi?
Back in 2010, Arsene Wenger signed Ryo Miyaichi.
Miyaichi was an unknown at the time. At 18-years-old, the Japanese forward had limited experience when he signed for Arsenal, and the punt never worked out for the Gunners.
His time with Arsenal was hugely underwhelming. He only made a handful of first-team appearances, spending loan spells at Feyenoord, Bolton, Wigan and FC Twente.
In 2015, Miyaichi eventually left Arsenal to sign for German club St. Pauli.
Miyaichi agreed a three year deal with St. Pauli, however he’s struggled to lock down a first team place at the German club.
Last season he only made 19 appearances for the club in league and cup competitions, while he registered two assists and zero goals.
Unfortunately for Miyaichi, he’s now going to be on the sidelines for some time.
On Wednesday the 24-year-old suffered a terrible injury at training as he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
According to Kicker on Thursday, Miyaichi is likely to miss the majority of the 2017-18. He’s not expected to return from injury until mid-March next year.
