Jack Wilshere is injured yet again, but is hoping to return soon. The Arsenal star has sent a message to fans via his Instagram account, praising his girlfriend for keeping him going during his time on the sidelines.
Wilshere split with long term partner Lauren Neal last year, and began dating his current girlfriend Andriani Michael early in 2015. Michael is the daughter of Wilshere’s barber, and the young midfielder is clearly besotted with her – based on the number of snaps he posts of the two together on social media.

Wilshere’s career has been marred by injury, and the 23-year-old is consequently yet to realise his massive potential. Fans were hopeful he was over his injury issues following an excellent pre-season and a superb end to the 2014/15 season, but shortly before the start of the new campaign he suffered a serious injury in training.
It seemed a fairly innocuous one initially, but things slowly escalated, and he’s now facing months in the doctor’s office.

Wilshere needs games if he wants to become the player he’s threatened to be all these years, and that’s not going to happen if he can’t remain injury free. Hopefully (and we say this every time) this injury is the last for a while.
