Speaking exclusively to Carlsberg, Kieron Dyer has said it is crazy to say that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere’s injury problems are down to his lifestyle.

The midfielder has had a horrendous injury record over the last few years, with a series of long term injuries severely limiting his game time.

That was the case last season, as an injury picked up before the beginning of the campaign saw him out until the final few weeks of the season.

There have been some questions raised about the lifestyle that the Gunners man enjoy, with some believing that may be a contributing factor his problems.

But Dyer, who was also plagued during his career, has said that it is crazy to suggest that is a cause.

“It’s crazy that people say Jack Wilshere’s lifestyle has anything to do with his injuries,” said Kieron Dyer, speaking exclusively to Carlsberg.

“If he was getting injuries that were muscular I’d see where they were coming from but he is getting impact injuries, when he goes past someone and gets his ankle smashed to pieces.”

Now that he is back fully fit, Wilshere will be hoping he can put the last few years behind him and become the star man that many hoped he would be for club and country.

He is set to feature for England at Euro 2016 this summer and given his lack of game time, that tournament could be the ideal place for him to find his form ahead of next season.
