Jack Wilshere joins West Ham: Fresh chance but will he take it?
sbobet24Jack Wilshere's Arsenal career is over but if he can cope with the feeling of rejection then there is still time for him to bounce back at West Ham, writes Adam Bate.It has been a chastening summer for Jack Wilshere. First there was the omission from Gareth Southgate's England squad, a decision about which he has made no secret of his annoyance. Southgate simply thought that there were better options and the subsequent performance of the team in Wilshere's absence has fully justified his decision.
Then came the meeting with new Arsenal head coach Unai Emery. Wilshere had already accepted reduced terms to stay at the club where he has made so many memories and won so many admirers over the past 17 years. There would be no transfer fee for Arsenal. But there would not be much football either. Emery just wasn't that keen, Wilshere explained.
"Following a number of extensive conversations sbobet24 with those at the club, and in particular a recent meeting with the new manager Unai Emery, I felt that I was ultimately left with little choice but to make the decision that I have due to purely footballing reasons. It was made clear to me that my playing time would be significantly reduced should I decide to stay."
Wilshere's statement, released on Instagram, continued: "I need to be playing regular first-team football and following my meeting with Mr Emery sbobet24 I came away with the feeling that it would be very difficult for me to do so at Arsenal. Given this, I feel I have no option but to pursue other opportunities in order to progress my career on the pitch."
