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.
The news and concerns about Jack Wilshere’s injuries have been all around since January and there is hope that he would be coming back to playing form by this month. That is what the boss of West Ham, Manuel Pellegrini is expecting and he has informed media accordingly. As he closes in on a return to the team, there is much that many expect out of him; when his ankle problem was revealed in January it was not sure that this midfielder of England team would be off form for the rest of the game season this year.
Though his ankle injury concerns were voiced in January, the problem was persisting from before. Wilshere has missed about 11 games before December of last year. He required minor surgery on the left ankle and though he did come back for a brief cameo in the game against Newcastle, the 27-year-old player has been down after that. He was advised to rest and sit out the next nine matches. As a result, most of the matches in December and January have been with him absent from the field. He was also absent when the team traveled to Bournemouth where he had been on loan in two earlier seasons.
