Snapshot: Wilshere uploaded a picture of him and his dad proudly holding Messi and Xavi's shirts on Twitter

Despite being probably the best player on the pitch, which held the likes of Iniesta, Xavi, Messi, Fabregas, Nasri and David Villa, Jack Wilshere was apparently too scared to ask Lionel Messi for his shirt after the game between Arsenal and Barcelona. The Arsenal captain, Cesc Fabregas, tweeted Wilshere saying:

can’t believe i had to go to get Messi’s shirt for u. U were so scared. You were MOTM [Man of the match] so next time please ask urself!”

In the end, Wilshere walked away with both Messi’s and Xavi’s shirts, and tweeted a picture of him [Right] and his dad holding the precious items which hold such significance to the young man early in his career.
He said:

“Morning tweeps. You will like this one. Me and my dad with Messi and Xavi’s shirt after the game.”

Wilshere was praised by his manager Arsene Wenger as outstanding after the Champions League clash, saying that the young midfielder was unfazed by the quality that surrounded him. After all, he will be – if not already – as good, if not better than the players he was up against. Wilshere is an outstanding and rare English talent and Arsenal are lucky to have such a down to earth, footballing man, who plays football so well – the heartbeat of the Arsenal midfield at times.

After the game, Wilshere was ecstatic:

“It’s been a great couple of weeks – the best of my life.

Tell me what you think!
