Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted the fact that Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere’s absence was vital for England – who saw themselves knocked out by an Italy which the manager didn’t see as favorites.
Jack has been out for the whole season, and it seems that the Gunner will be back in due time for the start of next season, but Redknapp seems to think that he was the missing key from England’s Euro squad.
‘It was almost complete dominance, and to be fair, I didn’t see that coming. I didn’t particularly rate this Italy side.’
‘Don’t blame Roy Hodgson though, he did the best he could at Euro 2012 with limited time. We were hard to beat and well organised, but hopefully now he can change the way England play and that goes right back to the youth teams,’
‘It’s over to Roy now. He has four years to stamp his style on the national team and set-up.
‘And maybe with Wilshere to the fore and a few of the old guard around him he can do it.’
Arsene Wenger’s key element is about to return to the pitch soon, and with new additions like Podolski and Giroud, the Gunners will certainly look amazing next season.
