Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that Jack Wilshere is hitting form in training as he prepares for his first appearance in the Gunners shirt this season.
The England international played no part in the club’s pre-season tour of Australia and China as he was recovering from a hairline fracture on his leg.
Wenger has opted to rest the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Cologne, and the Frenchman has hinted that Wilshere could play a part in the game, he said: “There was always a huge pressure on him to come back as quickly as possible and to expect a lot. He’s on a good way in training. He’s getting stronger and stronger every day, and that’s what we want from him. He was injured at the start of the season from last season, so he was a bit behind the other players but he’s getting better and better. Every game is an opportunity for him and this season’s a good opportunity for him as well.” (more…)
