Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere Suffers Setback

Arsène Wenger, says midfielder Jack Wilshere is out of contention for the international friendly against Holland next month.

“We are now at the end of January,” said Wenger. “He has not played since the summer so it is impossible. From day one, to practise again to be match fit I would say takes six weeks.” Though the Arsenal manager did not yet rule Wilshere out of the European Championship finals in June, he admitted the continuing absence of the player was as damaging to his club’s fortunes as to his country’s.

“It is a massive disappointment,” he said. “If you had told me that Jack would not have played one game by February I would have said: that’s impossible. I like to have a left-footed player in midfield. We miss that little burst from Jack.” As for the player himself, Wenger suggested: “How do you say in English? He’s gutted.”

Wilshere used Twitter to describe his frustration, saying: “I can’t tell you how long I have been set back because I don’t know! I am very annoyed but will stay strong.”

Wilshere has not played for Arsenal this season. He reported pain in his right ankle when running during his return on Tuesday and was immediately sent to see a specialist. Further tests were carried out yesterday, and club’s medical staff fears a recurrence of the stress fracture he suffered when on England duty last June.
