Stewart Robson has accused Arsenal of failing to teach Jack Wilshere the game.

The England international announced that he will leave the north London side on 1 July after he confirmed he will not sign a new deal with the Gunners.

Wilshere revealed in a lengthy post on Instagram that new Arsenal boss Unai Emery had indicated the injury-prone midfielder wasn’t a key part of his plans.

The 26-year-old was widely regarded as one of England’s big prospects at the start of his Arsenal career when the talented playmaker made his debut at the age of 17.

Wilshere won three FA Cups during his Gunners career but the diminutive midfielder was unable to guide the Gunners to Premier League title glory.

The England star struggled badly with injuries between 2012 and 2016 before he spent a season on loan at Bournemouth.

Wilshere defied his criticis after the former Bolton starlet battled his way back into first-team contention at the north London side.

Former Arsenal star Robson believes the Gunners have failed Wilshere.

“He has had lots of injuries,” Robson told ESPN FC. “I don’t think he looked after himself pretty well.

“I don’t think the club looked after him pretty well on the medical side and teaching him the game.”

Arsenal appointed Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement at Arsenal earlier this summer.
