Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown says that Jack Wilshere is out of this world after his performance against Red Star Belgrade.
Arsenal won their third consecutive Europa League game in a lethargic match in Serbia, but Keown saw fit to pour praise on Wilshere.
“It’s the brilliance of Wilshere, punching a hole in midfield, seeing what mere mortals can only dream of,” Keown told BT Sport.
“It’s a platform for Wilshere to prove fitness and ability. The saying behind scenes is that Jack is playing better than ever in training.”
Wilshere did indeed play pretty well on Thursday evening, but is yet to start a Premier League game this season or even play a minute in the league. Wenger says his chance will come, but we can’t help some pundits are falling over themselves to praise him.
It’s this kind of goodwill that makes Wilshere jumping into the England squad for the World Cup so likely.
The sooner Arsenal put Jack Wilshere’s quality, enthusiasm and tenacity into the Premier League the better.
