“The next step is for him to be competitive in the Premier League and to fight for his place in the team. He will get games, he will get the opportunity to show that Jack Wilshere is back.
“I would say this is the most mature Wilshere I have seen, in the game and outside the game. He is not excessive, he has taken a distance from the pressure that was always around him.
“He is a special talent and since he was 17 all the attention in the country was on him. He has gone through huge disappointments, but now he is a father and a happy father.
“You can see he thinks with a different perspective and I personally feel this is the most mature, balanced Wilshere I have seen.”
The vast majority of Arsenal fans are delighted that Jack Wilsher is back fit and playing well for the Gunners. The midfielder has been inspired at times this season and it’s only a matter of time before we see him in the Premier League.
