Following Wednesday night, Joe Willock received messages from Arsenal stars

Eddie Howe's concern

Joe Willock, a star for Newcastle United, has expressed awe once more after rebounds from an injury.

Following Newcastle’s Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund, the 24-year-old entered off the bench.

He took part in the last 20 minutes of the Magpies’ 1-0 loss.

Even though the outcome was disappointing, Joe Willock’s return to the St. James’ Park pitch was greatly anticipated. It was his first game since May adhering to an injury sustained towards the end of the previous campaign.

Joe Willock is thrilled about his Newcastle comeback

The fact that Joe Willock played against Dortmund was a complete surprise.

Even though Willock only started training again last week, it seemed like he would still be a few weeks away from making his comeback.

However, he was able to play, and on Saturday night, away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, he will try to continue increasing his match fitness.

He has posted a couple of pictures from Wednesday night’s game against Borussia Dortmund to his official Instagram account with captioning:

“Back doing what I love. Thanks for your support.”

A few people responded to his message, including Nick Pope, a colleague at childhood:

“Love to see it.”

Reiss Nelson, a former teammate and friend, also sent a message to Willock. The 23-year-old Arsenal player commented:

“My boy.”

Willock is feeling warmth from both current and past teammates. That demonstrates how popular he has been all of his career.

It was a genuine surprise to see the midfielder play against Dortmund, and even Eddie Howe could not contain his joy at having him back.

Eddie Howe needs to exercise caution when dealing with Willock.

Although many players have mentioned how much better Newcastle is with him on the team, it would be a mistake to rush him back into the starting lineup.
