Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful that Jack Wilshere’s situation is not a harsh one, declaring that it’s already better than expected, and that the attacking midfielder might not have such a big setback as Arsenal’s medical staff first thought.
Following the win against Villa Wenger spoke about Wilshere’s situation. The youngster was in the stands watching the match and seemed delighted of the turnaround by the Gunners.
“We have no real news yet. The first news we have had is better than expected. He is not in a boot, but I don’t know more,” said the Arsenal boss.
“His morale looks quite good and I hope it will only be a short setback. There will be more tests this week.”
Wenger added: “I do not know yet when he will start training. I would not like to make any mistake in my statement, because I did not speak to the medical people today.”
Arsenal needs Wilshere to come back more than ever with Wenger still without enough midfielders. Although he attempted to move on the transfer market, according to him there were no good available players.
