Injured Jack Wilshere Buys New Car

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is out with an injury and has his leg in plaster.

Perhaps to cheer himself up, he has bought a new car worth over 50,000 pounds.

The England star replaced his Range Rover Sport 2.6 HST 4×4 with the Autobiography Edition.

Reportedly Yianni Charalambous will kit it out.

“Jack has bought the car to cheer himself up because he’s fed up with his ankle injury,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

“He’s been going mad at home with nothing to do and spent loads of time checking out new cars online ahead of his operation.”
