Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger plays down Jack Wilshere injury fears
Arsene Wenger moves to play down concerns over Jack Wilshere's fitness ahead of Arsenal's clash with Southampton
Arsene Wenger has moved to play down concerns over Jack Wilshere’s fitness ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Southampton on Saturday.
It had been reported that Wilshere had suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury while on international duty with England after the midfielder featured in the recent defeats by Chile and Germany.
However, Wenger insists that the 21-year-old is not injured and moved to play down reports claiming that the Frenchman was unhappy at England boss Roy Hodgson’s management of Wilshere during the international break.
“First of all Jack is not injured, that was not the right information,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“Secondly, I have no problem with the FA, they respected completely what they told me and it was [for Wilshere] to play in one game and be on the bench in the other.
“They did that very well. So there is no misunderstanding there. Exactly [they did what we agreed].”
