Jack Wilshere has finally spoken about the FA’s charge against him for his anti-Spurs chants at our FA Cup victory parade and that he only found out about it once he arrived at England’s training camp, The Independent reports.
Wilshere insists that he remains disappointed that a player can be reprimanded for having “fun” with his alluring fans following an arduous season.
He also spoke of his pride to break the tradition of detached millionaire footballers who cannot be identified with the average fan and reiterated that he’s an Arsenal supporter, just like the many thousands that gathered to welcome the team that day.

“I found out [about the FA charge] when I got here [to the England camp].
“People have been giving me a lot of stick for having some fun and enjoying myself at the end of [the season],” Wilshere said.
“I’ve always had that bond with the Arsenal fans since I was young because I came through the club.
“I grew up at Arsenal and I love the fans, but believe it or not, I’ve actually got family who are Tottenham fans so it’s nothing personal against them, it was just a bit of fun.”
Wilshere has only strengthened his relationship with us fans after the period and remains the player the average individual in the stands at Emirates Stadium can relate to.
On the pitch, his talents are also mesmerising and next season is arguably his biggest yet for both club and country. The 23-year-old desperately needs an injury-free season to remind many of his unique talents.
