Following reports in this morning’s Mirror about the seriousness of Jack Wilshere’s injury, the Arsenal midfielder has confirmed the bad news.
Via his Twitter account, he said, “I can confirm I will be out for around 2-3 months! I am working hard in the gym to stay fit and I am gutted but I will be back stronger!”
The exclamation marks, they do nothing. Wilshere limped out of Arsenal’s Emirates Cup game with New York Red Bulls on July 31st with an ankle problem and hasn’t been seen since.
His absence is a blow for Arsene Wenger’s side, already without the permacrocked Abou Diaby. It does, however, provide a chance for Emmanuel Frimpong to turn his Twitter form into performances on the pitch, and for new recruits Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun to bed into the side.
Get well soon, Jack.
