Arsenal's Jack Wilshere apologises for Tottenham chants

The Arsenal midfielder has spoken out following his actions at the weekend.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has taken to Twitter to apologise for his behaviour during the Gunners’ FA Cup trophy parade at the weekend.

As reported by the BBC, the England international sang anti-Tottenham Hotspur songs that included expletives and his actions have since generated a considerable amount of headlines.

Wilshere came on as a second-half substitute against Aston Villa in Saturday’s FA Cup final; a match Arsene Wenger’s side won 4-0 courtesy of goals from Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud.

Despite confirmation from the BBC that Arsenal would not be taking any action against Wilshere, the player himself has now taken to social media to express his regret at his behaviour.

“Sharing back-to-back cup wins with so many amazing Gooners is a dream come true,” he wrote. “Apologies if I upset or offended any of you with my celebrations.”

Wilshere featured 22 times for Arsenal this season and he will be hoping that with a full pre-season behind him he will be able to play far more regularly in the upcoming campaign and beyond.
