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.

When you’re the manager of a football team, you know how hard it is to properly motivate your players and how difficult it can be to keep the ball rolling. Not only that, but you have to worry about people snatching your good players up, you have to constantly come up with game winning plays and every single one of your players has a personal life that comes into play as well.
This winter, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has struggled to prove that he has what it takes. This sent him scrambling back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong and how he can improve for the next season. However, all doesn’t seem lost as they scored a 2-0 win over Everton and with this win, Wenger believes he has found a formula for success.
It’s not all been Plain Sailing – one of the biggest mistakes Arsenal made this season was not signing a single outfield player. Arsenal has been coming up short in that regard, so this probably shouldn’t be a mistake that’s made again if Wenger wants to retain his successful track record. His original plans have been completely ripped to shreds and Wenger knows that there’s room for improvement. (more…)
Arsenal’s injury curse continues rolling on as many of Arsene Wenger’s key players have been suffering from injury spells including: Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere, are some of the more notable players of Arsenal who have recently suffered injuries.
Jack Wilshere has not managed to play a single minute of the Premier League for Arsenal in this season due to a broken fibula which he sustained back in September of 2015 and this forced the player to undergo a surgery. When the surgery was over, the medical staff of Arsenal stated that Wilshere would be out of action for 3 months but it has now been revealed that the English player will stay even longer away from the pitch.
When Arsene Wenger was asked about the condition of Wilshere, the French manager replied by saying: “If you ask me if he will be fit before the end of December, no chance’’.
Wilshere is now expected to make a return to the pitch in February of 2016 but this date could be extended even further if the Englishman receives other setbacks. (more…)
Arsene Wenger has dismissed suggestions that the club will be looking to sign Raheem Sterling from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with the gunners in the last few weeks. The recent statements from the two parties also did not help matters either. However, Wenger feels thatSterling would be a signing of no use to Arsenal at the moment since they are already extremely strong in that position.Sterling is capable of playing across the front – even as a striker – and he uses his blistering pace to great advantage.
Sterling said before the 4-1 defeat against Arsenal that he was extremely flattered to be linked with the North London outfit. It has been suggested that these comments just before the match did not help preparations and Liverpool suffered as a result of it. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers refused to criticise the 20-year-old. Instead, he looked at the positives and it wasSterling won the penalty from which Liverpool scored the only goal of the evening. Wenger is now in a strong position after having almost secured Champions League qualification for next season as a result of this victory. It pushes them into second spot ahead of Manchester City.
