West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere said that he wants to help the team secure European football at the end of the season. He said that it has been a difficult season for him as he has been injured since December and that he wants to return on the pitch as soon as he can.
The former Arsenal player has only been recently returned from injury and has been training with the Under 23 team. He said that it will take some time for him to be back to full fitness but he is sure that he can be part of the West Ham team before the end of the season.
Manuel Pellegrini, the manager of West Ham has stated that Jack Wilshere is recuperating well and is going to come back for training in a few days. The former midfielder of Arsenal has hardly featured for Hammer after he arrived in the last summer because of the injury. The conjecture has questioned recently as to whether or not Wilshere is going to return to fitness prior to the end of the season.
Wilshere had appeared for West Ham in the match against the Wolves in the month of December. However, Pellegrini had focused on the fact that it is necessary to allow Wilshere to recuperate completely before making a comeback in order to avoid more injury.
Jack Wilshere showcases Ross Barkley as an example to be replicated for him to get back to top form. Jack, also known as the star player of West Ham, has been impressed by the form of this Chelsea midfielder which has also earned him a recall for the England team.

Being a former star player of Arsenal, he has been struggling with injuries that have kept him back from the field in most games in recent years. He is especially resentful of having missed out from being part of the World Cup squad of Gareth Southgate last summer when they played in London Stadium.
The injuries are still going on to obstruct the West Ham man. Jack Wilshere has suffered another injury setback with midfielder West Ham struggling to return from surgery of ankle. The 26-year-old career has been affected by injury issue underwent a small surgery in September and is predicted to be sidelined for nearly six weeks.
But, Wilshere still has to take a rest because of some inflammation around the ankle, which means he cannot continue the training and pushing his likely return date back to November. “Jack felt a bit of pain the last two days here, so he needed more time to recover,” Manuel Pellegrini revealed. Wilshere, who joined Hammers on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer, had started all four West Ham Premier League matches before being wounded against Wolves on September 1.
Jack Wilshere supports NCF Elites, offering special education for children of all ages. Former Arsenal coach Paul Johnson, member of Arsene Wenger’s backroom team for 22 years, and NCC director Nick Cook has organized and runs sessions at the College of North East London in Enfield. It is designed to help talented youngsters with the best coaching that can help them reach the Gothia Youth World Cup – the biggest youth tournament on the planet.
West Ham’s former midfielder Wilshere took time to see the professional technical sessions before talking to the children to encourage them in the future. Wilshere said, “All I wanted to do was play football and there were opportunities like this, but there seems to be no facility like this or coaching organization. It was more, ‘Get a ball and go down in the park.’
Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has outrageously claimed that Jack Wilshere is one of the best English footballers of all time. Akpom, who is currently on a short-term loan with STVV, gave his surprise opinion shortly after a league game in the Jupiler league. Speaking to reporters, he said: “For me, Jack Wilshere is the best English footballer of all time. From Arsenal’s academy, he made it to the Premier League, and he became my idol. Jack is a natural talent, with an elegant control of the ball.”
Obviously, Wilshere has the natural ability of producing top-class performances on his day, but to compare him with some of the legends of the English game seems bizarre.

In a report covered by The Star, Parlour suggested that Wilshere may have to consider his Gunners future, if he is to progress further in his playing career.
