Arsenal's Oulad M'Hand Completes First 90 Minutes in 2 Years

Arsenal academy midfielder Salah-Eddine Oulad M'Hand has reached a significant milestone in his loan spell with Dutch second-tier club Den Bosch. On Friday, the 20-year-old completed his first 90-minute appearance in over two years, playing the full match against FC Eindhoven.

Oulad M'Hand, who joined Arsenal in 2020, has struggled with persistent injury problems that have limited his playing time. However, he has recently put together an impressive run of 9 consecutive starts for Den Bosch, the most he's had in a row in any season since arriving at the London club.

In the 2023/24 season, Oulad M'Hand made 20 appearances for Den Bosch, contributing 4 goals and assists. This marks a significant improvement from his time at Arsenal, where he made a total of 26 appearances for the club's under-21 side in the Premier League 2 and EFL Trophy across three seasons.

Den Bosch narrowly avoided relegation from the Dutch second tier this season, but Oulad M'Hand's recent form provides a positive note as he looks ahead to the future. With one year remaining on his Arsenal contract, the young midfielder will likely be seeking an extension or a permanent move in the coming months.

Oulad M'Hand's successful loan spell and return to full fitness mark important steps in his development. The 20-year-old's ability to string together consistent starts and contribute to his team's attack bodes well for his future prospects, whether at Arsenal or elsewhere.
