Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere refusing to rush injury comeback

Jack Wilshere

The midfielder says he is determined to come back and prove his worth once again.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Jack Wilshere insists he won’t rush his injury comeback.

The midfielder has missed the entirety of the beginning of this campaign, after picking up an injury at the end of last season.

He suffered a hairline fracture to his left fibula, and has since been working his way back to full fitness.

In his absence, Arsene Wenger’s side have enjoyed a strong start and currently find themselves joint top of the Premier League table.

That has likely ramped up the frustration Wilshere, who was also starring for club and country at the time, and though he is keen to return, he insists he won’t rush the process.

“I’m working as hard as I can to try to come back,” he told arsenal.com.

“I know what it takes because unfortunately I’ve been injured a few times in my career and I know what it takes to come back. I’m not going to rush it. I’ll make sure my body’s right and at the moment I’m feeling good.”

This injury is not the first for Wilshere, with him having suffered a number of injuries over his relatively short career.

He has in the past, proved that he is capable of fighting back to fitness and playing a big part in the side.

That was something he did at the end of last season before this latest injury, scoring several top goals along the way, and he says he is keen to prove his worth once again.

“We’re still early in the season and the busiest part of the season is coming up,” he added.

“I want to be part of this team and I proved last season that I can get back and fight for a place. I know it’s not going to be easy but that’s what I want to do.”
