Jack Wilshere has been speaking about his return from injury and the Arsenal midfielder says that he is feeling sharper with every game.
Speaking to the FA website, Wilshere, who missed all of last season with an ankle injury, said
“I’ve got maybe 90 per cent of my sharpness back, but with every game I feel better and better. When I get up to 100 per cent then I can really show what I can do.
“It’s a new experience for me, having a long-term injury. I spoke to players who’ve been there, and they said that when you come back, you have a good game, then another when you’re not so good.
“In my first few games my adrenaline was up and that’s what got me through, but then it’s not as simple as that and there is more to it.”
Wilshere’s boss, Arsene Wenger, added that he is managing the midfielder’s return, saying
“I have to be cautious. It was good to leave him at home in midweek because today was the first time I have seen him very close to the player he is and we have to see if there is any reaction.
“It is good to play him two or three times and then give him one-game breather.”
