Holding earlier showed how grateful he was for all the messages he had received.
The centre back, who joined Arsenal from Bolton in 2016, added: “This team is special! I love my guys. Thank you for all the support from players, staff and fans.”
Holding has 16 appearances this season and looks to be in the good books of new boss Unai Emery, who said at the time that Holding had suffered a “big injury”.
Holding’s injury adds to Emery’s problems, after a number of his players were shown inhaling ‘hippy crack’.
