Arsene Wenger defends Jack Wilshere after nightclub row


The Gunners midfielder made the papers for all the wrong reasons this week after appearing to get into a heated argument outside a night club.

Wilshere, 24, has not yet played this season after recovering from a lengthy injury.

Still, Wenger is impressed with what he has seen from the England international since returning to the team training, and attempted to cool talk about the player’s personal life.

‘I’ve spoken to him,’ said the manager in his press conference this morning. ‘It looks to be taken out of proportion a little bit. These are matters we like to keep internal.

‘There was no training session the next day. I had a day off. You can accept players go out.’

The Frenchman continued: ‘He’s very serious, very dedicated. The only thing that could stop him from having the career he can make is injuries.

‘He had the history of his injuries. It’s been bad recently. But I hope he can get rid of that and make the career he deserves.
