Wilshere Update: Fresh Setback For Gunners Ace

By on August 1, 2012

jack wilshere injury

Arsenal have been dealt an injury blow with news coming from Goal.com that midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered yet another setback in his recovery and will not be back in action until mid-November.

The youngster missed the whole of last season after undergoing surgery on an ankle fracture sustained in pre-season that was followed by several complications, while he also underwent knee surgery in May.

Manager Arsene Wenger claimed last week he hoped the 20-year-old could return in October. However, Goal.com claim they have been told by club insiders that the ace is well behind that schedule and he is now not expected to return to first-team duties until mid-November at the earliest.

The England international is well short of fitness and is still restricted to doing gym work, despite spending the entire summer working on his rehabilitation at the clubs London Colney training base, and there is still no date set for him to return to the training pitch to start ball work.

The summer has been filled with uncertainty surrounding the return of Wilshere and Arsene Wenger has often been very cryptic with his answers when questioned about the midfielder.

If Goal.com are accurate, and Jack doesn’t return until the middle of November, serious questions must be asked of the Arsenal medical team. As well as the questionable handling of Wilshere’s injury, they have struggled to identify and treat several injuries in recent seasons including those suffered by Tomas Rosicky, Thomas Vermaelen and Abou Diaby.

Are you concerned by the length of time Wilshere has been out? Get involved in the comments section.

    regardless of the fresh rumors you have to say that there is something wrong with the medical team at the grove. they seem to miss a lot of small issues that ultimately
    end up being massive ones.

    No problems. Arsenal would wait but hope this guy wouldn’t come back, put in 1 season of decent performance and start asking for transfer becos “Arsenal would not match his ambitions”!!!!!

      We were having injuries like this even when Gary Lewin was here. He was good enough to be head of the England international medical team, so our medical team arent to blame

      How on earth would you know what the medical team are or aren’t doing? Do I come to Africa and comment on the medical staff of your local team?.. Also please try to write your comments in English, that is the national language of this country 🙂

      COYG!

        the national language of the internet.not all of us r in yo country.dude not all of us readers are english speakers,not all arsenal fans are english, eh.. how many non-englishman are in the arsenal squad, dont u think they have fans from their own countries. stop hating and just move on,this is not the most important issue in yo life.

        @tommyt, stop being silly. Not everyone comes from England and we support arsenal not because it comes from England, but because of their game. We care not about your damn f**king national language, all we do is care for the game. Grow up!

        tommyt I find your comment condescending and racist. It seems you are unaware that football is global and people now follow various foreign leagues irrespective of their countries of origin. The Clubs in your beloved country know that, and take advantage of it by going on preseason tours to those countries to reach out to those fans while making huge financial gains in the process. How dare you question his spoken english when it’s not his mother tongue? It shows you lack breeding. I hope the admin of this site looks into your comment and reprimands you for it. People like you give England a bad name.

    I’m pissed with Arsenal medical team handling of Jack wilshere’s injury,honestly i have done an understudy on all the so called biscuit-legged players we have Abou diaby,Rosicky,Van persie,Djourou and the likes before their arrivals them players never have injury history before coming to arsenal,for a fact our medical team shouldn’t take all the blame,the culprit of these of this mishap is wenger and arsenal board members who seem contented with the development because our board is so close-fisted to provide advanced medical facilities and funds to our medical team,our medical staff only works with the resources made available to the club,just as wenger and the egocentric board members led by stan kroenke go the transfer market with wallet to buy players,they incorporated the same petty spending on our players injury,must they be stingy from all ramifications of life,but they know how to extort money from their fans with inflated ticket prices to watch arsenal home matches,wenger the board and medical team should be overhauled,they have turned my sweet and darling arsenal to a mediocre team,if not handled properly jack promising will suffer a setback,i challenge wenger to sell diaby and see if his injuries woes will not stop,jack wishing u a speedy recovery

    Point of currection arsenal have the best medic centre in the history of football, the problem of jack and others has nothing to do with the profesional medic team, we all know the desperation of inpacient lead to this discripances if we had a better player in his position many of you guy will want him to stay longer in the out line, j boy will be back and better thats my wish

    The medical team should be disband becos the were not qualify. The injury is not as bad as the doctor are claiming. Wilshere should allow outside doctor to intervene may from germany or china. He is too young to be injury worried. Gunners till i die.

    Its becoming frustrating with this Wilshere injury. Am having serious doubt about the capability of our medical team. Probably we should sign a new medical team. I wish Wilshere a complete recovery when hes very fit.

    That’s a real contempt on our medical team;I believe they are doing what they are being paid for at the best interest of the club.Have it in mind that other clubs inject their indespensable player which would later have adverse effect on the player and team respectively.

    They should try and give hiM a special treatment to make it faster

    Arsenal management should change the medical and employed another medical practititioner to take over the treatment of jack otherwise he career will ruin
