LONDON, England – Players from Premier League leaders Arsenal sent stricken Formula One great Michael Schumacher a get well message after their 2-0 home win over Cardiff City on Wednesday, January 1.

Following the match at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal’s German forward Lukas Podolski posted on Facebook a picture of him and several of his teammates holding an undershirt bearing the message “GET WELL SOON SCHUMI.”




In a written message, Podolski said: “Tough game, important win and we are on top position again. But our thoughts are with you, Michael. All the best wishes from AFC team to you. Poldi.”

Seven-time world champion Schumacher began the new year in an induced coma in a hospital in the French city of Grenoble after hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the Alps.

His manager Sabine Kehm told journalists on Tuesday, December 31, that Schumacher was not skiing at high speed, explaining that the accident was a result of a “chain of unfortunate circumstances.”

Schumacher was skiing “with a small group of friends” as well as his 14-year-old son Mick, his manager added.

The German sustained severe brain injuries in the incident, but his condition was described on Wednesday as “stable.”
