Arsene Wenger had nothing but praise for Jack Wilshere following his impressive showing in last week in the Gunners’ resounding victory over BATE Borisov.
The Gunners signed off the group stages with a 6 nil routing at the Emirates last Thursday and it was Wilshere who was at the heart of it all with a monstrous performance which included a goal and an assist.
Wenger very much like every Gooner who saw his classy display was purring after the game. The boss further stated that the fit again midfielder is now pushing for regular game time in the Premier League.
“You will see more of him because he had a little fracture [before] the start of the season, but now I would not even say he is coming back – he is back,”Daily Cannon reports the manager said.
“The next step is for him to be competitive in the Premier League and to fight for his place in the team. He will get games, he will get the opportunity to show that Jack Wilshere is back.
“I would say this is the most mature Wilshere I have seen, in the game and outside the game. He is not excessive, he has taken a distance from the pressure that was always around him.
“He is a special talent and since he was 17 all the attention in the country was on him. He has gone through huge disappointments, but now he is a father and a happy father.
“You can see he thinks with a different perspective and I personally feel this is the most mature, balanced Wilshere I have seen.”
The coming weeks are set to prove very crucial in the midfielder’s future, with his contract up at the end of the current campaign, Wilshere’s form and fitness over the festive period would be key in determining if the player would be signing a new contract to extend his stay with the Gunners before the end of the season.
