Jack Wilshere looks to be set for another injury ravaged season, with the 23-year-old prepping for surgery next week. Arsene Wenger claims it’s a big blow, but doesn’t think the youngster’s future has been damaged – despite his constant injury woes.
Wilshere was expected to be back in action in no time following the injury he received in training, but things steadily escalated for the England international. His return date was pushed back and back, until eventually it was revealed that he needed surgery.
Wenger has confirmed that the surgery is set for next week, and believes the issue Wilshere has is a big one.
“He will have surgery next week, it’s a blow,” said Wenger, as quoted by talkSPORT.
“It is a big problem – but in the short term only because it doesn’t damage his future.”
As the report suggests, Wilshere has now missed almost 1,000 days of football in his young career. He was unquestionably one of the most promising young talents in the country, but has so far been unable to recognise his potential.

It would be a huge shame to see this trend to continue, so hopefully we can help him overcome his persistent problems. He is a fantastic asset when fully fit, and Arsenal is in his blood.

Loyalty is hard to come by these days in football, but Wilshere certainly seems the type to stick with his club through thick and thin. We should therefore do the same, and stick by Jack during yet another difficult period for the young midfielder.
