Pic Of The Week #1

Jack Wilshere, who netted twice for Arsenal against Rangers in the Emirates Cup. At just 17-years-old, he’s the next big thing at Arsenal.

He’s been so good, fans are already calling on the youngster to be apart of the senior team next season, and some have suggested he’s good enough for the England team. The highly rated young star is certainly one of the biggest prospects in England at the moment.

But Wenger has played down talk:

The only problem in England, knowing the impatience of English people, is that it will be difficult to keep the right pace in his [Wilshere’s] progress.

“Let’s be calm and quiet. There is still a year to go to the World Cup, and let’s see how he improves, how he is consistent.
“Let’s not make stars in just two games.

One thought on “Pic Of The Week #1

  1. saw this on sky sports news last night. the kid certainly is gifted…..

    but i gotta agree with Wenger on this one – certainly if the next ‘great’ is in fact wilshere.

    only thing is it does take the heat off the fact that he’s sold adebayor
