Jack Wilshere has taken to Instagram to vow to “stay positive” after undergoing ankle surgery on Thursday.

The Arsenal midfielder is expected to be out of action for around three months after suffering the injury in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Manchester United at Emirates Stadium.

The 22-year-old posted the picture above of himself in a hospital bed, with his ankle in a cast after the operation.

Wilshere wrote: “Ankle needed surgery in the end, went well thanks to the main man James Calder!

“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight.

“You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”

In reference to the death of cricketer Phillip Hughes on Thursday, Wilshere added: “Puts life in perspective when you things like this happen, and makes my injury look like nothing! Thoughts are with Phillip Hughes family. Horrible news! RIP”

Wilshere has made nine Premier League appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring one goal and making one assist.

An Arsenal statement read: “Jack will now commence his injury rehabilitation programme with the Arsenal medical team.

“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

How much are Arsenal going to miss Jack Wilshere?
