'Nonsense' - Wilshere slams criticism of his 'brittle' ankles

Jack Wilshere Press Conference - 18/02/2014

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has reacted angrily to claims he has weak ankles.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has reacted angrily to claims he has brittle ankles following his injury against Manchester United.

Wilshere has just endured surgery on the injury he picked up against United last weekend, continuing a very familiar trend for the England star over the last couple of seasons.

The Mirror branded the star as having the ‘world’s most brittle ankles’ which he criticised via his Instagram page, suggesting that the above picture shows any modern day professional player would have broken his ankle in the same instance.

Wilshere is expected to be out of action until the New Year following the surgery as he became the latest in a long line of Arsenal players to suffer injury problems so far this season.

His comments appear to be fuelled by a mixture of unnecessary criticism from the daily paper and the frustration caused by his latest injury setback, which came at a time when he was proving himself to be arguably Arsenal’s best midfield man.
