Whether he was supposed to reveal this news or not, young Englishman Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has stated that Jack Wilshere is experiencing pain related to the operation he had for a stress fracture back in 2011.
We all know the lengthy spell the talented youngster had on the sidelines following the frustrating injury that kept him out of the entire 2011/12 season.
The young Englishman had metal screws inserted in his ankle to aid in the recovery of the stress fracture, but now it seems they are beginning to give him some grief.
Wenger was shrewd about revealing details on the injury when he was rested against Fulham saying:
There is no basic ankle problem. I just felt we had to stop him because of inflammation last time and I just felt to give him three games in six days would be too much.
Chambo however revealed more details on the injury and is quoted as saying by ESPN Soccernet:
The news is that it is not too bad.
He’s just getting a bit of pain in his ankle from a few screws.
If you can bounce back from what he did, you can bounce back from anything.
The Sun goes further saying that the Wilshere may require a small operation post-season to rectify the injury, but hopefully the extent of the injury is within what both Wenger and Chambo have revealed.
Wilshere is reported to be returning to action against newly crowned champions Manchester United this weekend and what better way to return to action by beating Van Persie and co. at the Emirates!
