Arsene Wenger shocked the footballing world on Thursday by announcing that Jack Wilshere had suffered a setback during his injury comeback.
With Arsenal usually managing to bring injured players back far ahead of schedule, it comes as a huge surprise to learn that Wilshere’s recovery has been hampered.
Wenger was also typically specific about the particular issue and the new timescale of his recovery.
“I expected Jack to be back and available and it’s slower than expected,” Wenger said.
“He had a little setback, I don’t know quite what.
“I have to talk to my medical staff.”
Yeah, might be an idea Arsene. Especially as two minutes earlier you were talking about having sufficient cover.
