Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reassured fans over Jack Wilshere fitness.
Indeed the player has sustained an injury during the club tour in the USA and fans were worried that the player would again be missing a big chunk of the season. Jack Wilshere has been an injury-prone player ever since he made his start for Arsenal and fans were hoping that this season would be different.
However, Arsene Wenger has stated that the player’s injury is not a serious one and that he has already started running. The French manager made the statement after the friendly match that saw Arsenal beat Viking by 8-0.
Arsene Wenger said that the player will start to train normally in the days to come and will be available for selection at the start of the season.
This will be good news for Arsenal as the team is currently short on players. Indeed the London club has suffered various injuries to defenders Per Mertesacker as well as Gabriel. And when you know that players such as Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny as well as Olivier Giroud are still on holidays, you can easily imagine how important it will be for Arsene Wenger to have Wilshere back in the team.
