Wilshere: Why I’ll be an Arsenal player for life

Jack Wilshere reckons he will stay with the Arsenal for life because he is in love with the rip-roaring Reds. Not sure if you’ve seen this interview he did at the weekend but in it he is pretty adamant that he is a Gunner for the remainder of his playing days. A bold statement from the Boy Wonder but refreshing given the amount of transfer speculation we have to put up with.

The chat was with iFilm London, in which, asked if he will stay at the club forever, he said: “I promise that, yeah. I’ve been at the club since I was nine and learned to love it. From the Vieira days, to Bergkamp, Fabregas, I’ve watched them come through and move on. There’s a crop of new players, Ramsey, myself, Kieran Gibbs – hopefully we can really create something special. I love the club and I want to be part of its future.”

Meanwhile, Wilshere revealed his frustration at the injury setback which has kept him sidelined. He added: “It’s going really slow at the minute and obviously I’m really frustrated. I should be back in training by mid-December, then I can crack on and it’s up to the boss when he picks me.

“It’s massively frustrating, especially after last year when we were so close to winning a trophy. We beat Barcelona at home and everything seemed to be going well and it ended sadly. I was looking forward to this season, I really thought we could push on and do something. To get a setback is massively frustrating but I’ll be back in December and hopefully we can push on from then.”
