It has been revealed by official website Arsenal.com that Arsenal star Jack Wilshere is set to undergo minor knee surgery on a existing long-term injury to his left patella tendon.
The young Englishman has been hit hard by injury and is still undergoing rehabilitation for a second stress fracture he suffered in his right ankle earlier this year.
Arsenal made sure to say that the rehabilitation of the midfielders troublesome ankle is going ‘very well’ and no doubt everyone wants him to make a full recovery.
While the news of another surgery will worry Arsenal fans, the official website was also quick to point out that the procedure shouldn’t significantly impede his road to recovery ahead of next season.
We have certainly missed the Englishman’s presence this season and hopefully the upcoming surgery doesn’t hurt his chances of making a successful comeback next season. The last thing we need is for him to miss half of next season!
