Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla: Jack Wilshere has amazing potential
Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla says Jack Wilshere has "amazing potential" after he made his return from injury lay-off
Santi Cazorla admits he has been thrilled with the impact Jack Wilshere has had at Arsenal since making his return from a lengthy injury lay-off.
The England international missed the whole of last season with knee and ankle injuries but has been quick to re-establish himself as one of Arsenal’s key players after making his comeback earlier this season.
Cazorla, who himself has earned many new admirers since joining the Gunners from Malaga in the summer, has been thoroughly impressed by the 20-year-old’s performances alongside him in midfield this term.
“He has amazing potential,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player. “I did not know him well when I arrived because he was not at the training sessions due to his injury, and everyone was already talking about him, saying that when he returned, the team would improve, and that has been the case.
“Every day he is gaining more confidence, he is forgetting about the injury, and he is a key player that can influence the result in a game, and thus, we are all very happy to see him 100 per cent again.
“He was out for a long time and it was an injury that takes time to heal. It is always hard to come back from injury, especially if it is very long.
“You always have that fear up until you start getting your confidence back, and you start getting back to your old self, and he has done that quickly.”◀ The Sport Review homepageNext story ►
