Jack Wilshere has played in three Arsenal matches this season (the whole 90 minutes in two), but none of those was in the Premier League. That’s what he hopes to see change, soon.
I always hear the boss say it’s my first five-metre burst, when I receive the ball and get away from defenders, and I feel that’s getting better and better each day
the 25-year-old told Arsenal’s official website.
I feel like the way to improve that is in games when you’re playing against opposition that want to win and want to win the ball back and you have to be able to keep the ball
Wilshere said. As for his fitness levels;
If I’m honest, they are probably the best they’ve ever been. I look at my numbers after the game and I’ve been out for four months and I’m not the one who hasn’t run the most. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t run the most, we’ve got a lot of players that do that, but my numbers are good so I’m happy
the Gunners midfielder said. Last, he was asked to look back, on the time that he was sidelined due to some injury.
Of course there’s been times when it’s been tough, when you’re injured and you wake up in the morning, you think ‘Oh I’ve got to go to training, all the other lads are training, you’ve got to go to the gym’. That makes you stronger and it makes you appreciate it more and try and do everything you can to keep fit and keep on the pitch
the now healthy and fit Wilshere said.
