George Graham expects Arsene Wenger to have a word with Jack Wilshere after the Arsenal midfielder’s recent antics at a Las Vegas pool party.

The England international was caught drinking and smoking as the Gunners star relaxed following the Three Lions’s disappointing World Cup campaign.

His career has not gone anywhere in the last 18 months

Wilshere, who has been previously criticised for smoking outside a nightclub in October, was joined by Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

But former Arsenal boss Graham feels Wilshere’s behaviour is unacceptable and feels someone at the north London club must speak to the 23-year-old, ideally Wenger.

“Arsene Wenger is the right man to deal with it. He wants a person to not only train well and eat well, but behave well,” Graham told talkSPORT.

“After the bad publicity shots in the newspapers, somebody has got to have a word with him and I think Arsene Wenger will do.

“His career has not gone anywhere in the last 18 months. The papers now want any sort of publicity of players misbehaving and he has got to get his act together.

“Arsene Wenger has to have a word with Jack and tell him the responsibility he has now got. They were talking about him being a future Arsenal captain and a captain shouldn’t be acting like that.”
