Arsenal 23 year old stand out Jack Wilshere says that his recovery is going along according to plan.
Wilshere has not even been able to make a debut in 2015 after suffering a hairline fracture of his left fibia at the end of preseason and he admits that it hasn’t been easy.
“Mentally this one has been the toughest to take because I had a big injury last year, came back, got myself fit, back in good form, played for England. Then I cut my holiday short for two weeks and came in to try to get myself right for this season.”
“I thought, ‘This season I need to be fit for the whole season and go into the Euros with a whole season behind me’. Unfortunately on the last day of pre-season I got injured so it was probably the toughest one for me to take.”
Wilshere was the 10th youngest debut for England’s national squad at eighteen and has been a part of Arsene Wenger’s system since 2008. Despite the fact that he’s suffered long term injury before Wilshere says he’s keeping a grip on his patience,
“I’m not going to rush it. I’ll make sure my body’s right and at the moment I’m feeling good.”
