The 25-year-old was not in any of England’s three World Cup group games as an unfamiliar substitute, and left the team before the disappointing matches against Senegal and France.

The statement asked the FA to respect the player’s privacy, before Gareth Southgate refused to give credence to a story which alleged a photo between White and assistant manager Steve Holland.

After his departure, White joined the docks in Dubai, and is now posting a series of photos on Instagram along with the caption “I give the baby back”.

White played a friendly match against AC Milan on Tuesday as he looks to build his fitness ahead of his return to the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Coach Mikel Arteta was happy to see him playing again.

“I like it, everyone gave him a lot of help and love, which he needed,” the manager of the shipyard announced in an interview.

“You know the reasons why he had to leave the camp, and it helps us to have him back and in good shape.

The club previously sent the message, “We’re with you, Ben,” following the defender’s exit from the England camp.

This came after an FA statement which read: “Ben White has left England’s training base in Al Wakrah and returned home for personal reasons.

“The Arsenal defender is not expected to return to the squad for the rest of the tournament.

“We ask that the privacy of the player be preserved at this moment in time.”
