Arsene Wenger has rubbished suggestions that Jack Wilshere has suffered a setback in his recovery from ankle surgery.

The Arsenal midfielder is currently out of action after undergoing an operation in November and is expected to be out of action for around three months.

Recent reports in the British media had claimed that the England international could be set for a longer spell on the sidelines than initially anticipated.

However, Wenger has emphatically denied the claims.

“That’s completely wrong,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website. “He’s doing very well. He’s on crutches so I don’t see how he can have a setback.

“It’s frustrating because it’s hard enough for Jack to be injured. He doesn’t need the negative news on top of that.

“It’s always frustrating to deny things that are not true.”
