Jack Wilshere is back in training for the coming season after their disappointing exit from the Euro 2016 tournament in France.

The Arsenal midfielder posted pictures of himself in the gym getting in shape for the next campaign.

The player isn’t letting the disappointment weigh him down and has started the season’s preparation ahead even though he just got back a week ago from international duty. Most of the players that made the Three Lions team were given another three weeks off by their clubs to recover fully after their exit from the continental championship.

The player took to his profile on popular social media app Instagram to share pictures of his work out sessions. The picture showed him doing pull ups on a shower cubicle. He posted on his account alongside the picture: “what’s done is done, all I can do now is prepare for next season the best I can!”

The 24-year old player featured in three games at the tournament though he started just one. Former coach Roy Hodgson was widely criticised for taking the player along to France considering he lacked match sharpness as he had only returned from injury. He made just six appearances all season [totalling 150 minutes for Arsenal] without scoring any goal or providing any attempt. Hodgson overlooked in-form player such as Andros Townsend and Danny Drinkwater.  

Wilshere was touted back then as one of the stars of England but he has consistently failed to play more than 30 Premier League games a season since the 2010/2011 season. The past few seasons have seen a decline in the attractiveness of the player on the field of play. His position at the club isn’t stable yet and he knows this, hence the effort he is putting at restoring confidence.
