Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere hits back at Jamie Redknapp

Jack Wilshere hits back at Jamie Redknapp for not sympathising with him about his injury troubles

Jack Wilshere has hit back at Jamie Redknapp for not sympathising with him about his injury troubles.

The 22-year-old Arsenal midfielder has suffered a number of injury setbacks in his career and missed the entire 2011-12 season due to an ankle problem.

If you look back, he was injured just as much as I was

Redknapp recently questioned the England international’s form, but Wilshere feels that the former midfielder should be more understanding.

“With all due respect, I think Redknapp should have some sympathy and understanding,” said Wilshere.

“It’s easy for someone to go on television and say: ‘He should be doing this, he should be doing that’.

“But, if you look back, he was injured just as much as I was. Maybe more than I was. And he was never injured at my age as well, and it does take a lot of mental strength [to come back].

“So to hear people go on TV and say: ‘He’s got to be doing this or that,’ I don’t need that. I listen to people like the boss here, Gary Neville, people who talk a lot of sense and can help me with my game.”
