Ray Parlour explains how Wenger will have reacted to Wilshere incident

Jack Wilshere

The midfielder has recently returned from a long term injury.

Arsene Wenger will not have torn shreds off Jack Wilshere about the headlines regarding the midfielder this week, Ray Parlour has told talkSPORT.

Wilshere has missed the entirety of this season with the latest in a long line of injuries that he picked up on the eve of the new campaign.

He is now back training with the first team squad though as he looks to have an impact in his side’s remaining games, and make it into the England squad for Euro 2016.

While that is a positive, the headlines surrounding him this week have instead been involving an incident off the field.

They will have disappointed Wenger, but Parlour insists his old boss will not have gone to town on his midfielder about it.

“It’s a shame because he’s worked so hard to get himself back fit and he’s looking to be a part of the Euros squad,” he told talkSPORT.

“Arsene Wenger will have pulled him over afterwards, but he wouldn’t have gone to town on him.”

“The boss isn’t stupid. He will hear Jack’s side of the story and see in training that he is working hard to get himself fit again. He’s not going to jeopardise that on a night out.”

Wilshere would now do best to get his head down and focus on getting fully fit between now and the end of the season.

He certainly has some proving to do at the Emirates, with injuries having seen his one bright future considerably halted.

Nonetheless, he is still fancied by both Wenger and Roy Hodgson, and now must go some way to repaying that faith shown in him.
