In the wake of reports that Jack Wilshere could be out for some weeks , it is safe to say to that the 23-year-old Gunner has never pass through a season unscathed at Arsenal.
As reported by the Guardian, he suffered a fracture to his left fibula while training ahead for the Gunner’s first match of the season. The extent of the damage done to his fibula will be known on Friday upon a scan. He will be out for six to eight weeks if he requires an operation.
Wilshere who has been battling for a place in the highly competitive and creative Arsenal midfield was left out of the team that triumphed over Chelsea on Sunday but he will now be forced to play catch up during the course of the season in terms of his overall fitness.
It is argued that his presence in the team would not be missed as such but his absence from the squad means Arsenal are left with just three creative midfielders on a team whose style and philosophy thrives on creativity. In a bid to maintain the squad depth, Wenger may just be tempted to look outwards for a player who rarely plays on the sidelines.
In recent times, Arsenal have made investment in injury prevention after acquiring a fitness coach. Apparently, this news must be frustrating for both Wilshere and his boss Arsene Wenger, who seem to have great plans and belief for the England international player.
The teeming supporters of Arsenal will be disappointed and drop whatever expectation they have of the player.
