David Moyes spoke to West Ham United’s official website about Jack Wilshere and how the standstill in football has helped him.
The Hammers, like everyone else, have returned to full training and are gearing up for the restart of the Premier League.
Wilshere last played for West Ham back in October last year. The former Arsenal man’s injury issues have continued to play spoilsport but he is now fit and ready to go.
Moyes feels that Wilshere has benefitted from the halt in football and is confident that he will be available when the season restarts in a couple of weeks time.
He said: “Jack Wilshere is another one who has got himself fit and in good condition recently, so we’re seeing signs of it. Jack will feel much better in himself for having come through the sessions we’ve put on and he’s needed it, but then others have needed that as well.”
A poor end to the season could see Wilshere sold
Wilshere will be playing for his West Ham future once the season restarts. The Englishman hasn’t done enough for the Irons to keep hold of him but a good end to the season will surely change their minds.
Moyes certainly believes in him and his quality on the ball is rarely ever questioned. However, his fitness has remained the biggest issue throughout his career and it will all come down it yet again.
West Ham are currently 16th in the league table, level on points with 18th placed Bournemouth and just two points above 19th placed Aston Villa.
If the Hammers aren’t too careful, they will be in the drop zone very soon and once they are down there, it will not be easy to get out before the end of the season.
