Jack Wilshere: “Steven is a great role model ”

Jack Wilshere has told that he is not ready to compare with Steven Gerrard yet and he admits Gerrard his role model in game.

Wilshere returned to Arsenal with a long injury and he notched a brilliant goal against Swansea in FA Cup Third round. His goal helped arsenal to step forward in completion.


He added they are preparing to face Chelsea and they have won against them in last year so the Gunners can repeat that.

His journey is a long one, but he is delivering a class game so he named with Gerrard. Wilshere has took that as a pride, but he has to achieve a lot in future.

His responses for Gerrard’s comparison: “Steven is a great role model,”

“He has been the heartbeat of Liverpool for years. He has also been the stand-out performer for England as well. He is a great role model for me.

“He was someone I looked up to when I was younger. He has 100 caps for England. For any young midfielder he is someone to base your game on and try to be like him. If I can get anywhere near as good as him and drive the team forward like he does, then I will be happy.”

20-years-old midfielder is waiting to deliver a better game over Chelsea.

“Chelsea is a big game for us,”

“We won there last year so we know we can do it. We have to take our game to them and play our football. We know they got great players, great individuals who can change the game, but we have as well.

He ended: “Chelsea don’t like playing against us. We play football and so do they. If you can take the game to them, get in behind them, get Theo Walcott to use his pace and get Santi Cazorla in the holes, we can do well.”
