Jack Wilshere fears he’ll never play for Arsenal again

09/11/16

Jack Wilshere admits it’s impossible for him to say if he will return to Arsenal next season, or indeed if he has a future at the club.

Wilshere joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day as he bids to get his career back on track after years of injury frustration.

The midfielder has made a good start to life on the south coast where he recently completed his first 90 minutes in over two years and also won a recall to the England squad.

But despite admitting he still wants to play for Arsenal, Wilshere admits it’s impossible to make predictions.

“It’s difficult for me to say because I love Arsenal and I’ve had great times there, and they’ve been great for me, and I can still see myself playing there,” he said.

“But who knows what the future holds? I’ve got a year left when I go back there.

“At the moment I’m just trying to have a season where it puts me in a good position at the end of the year, I’m improved as a player and Arsenal want me back, and we’ll see where we go from there.

“I always thought to myself ‘of course I love Arsenal’ but if there comes a time where I have to leave, then I have to leave, you know? If I go back and I’m not going to be playing, then, of course, I have to think about things.

“But at the moment I’m concentrating on Bournemouth. I want to put myself in a position where I go back next year and I’m a better player, and I’m fitter, and I can prove to people I can play week in, week out, and I’m ready for the challenge.”
