England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered a horrible amount of time on the sidelines as a result of ankle injuries in recent years. The player could be set for one more week on the sidelines according to the manager, Wenger. Wilshere has not been part of the Arsenal first team since the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal a few weeks ago. The ankle injury suffered by the player but then who is expected to keep him out for up to 3 weeks. However, Wenger has revealed that the club are taking cautious measures when it comes to recovering him.
Due to his history when it comes to inflammation of the ankles, Wenger has said that Arsenal are ready to rest him when needed. This will include the one week time that he will spend on the sidelines in order to recuperate. Wilshere’s presence is extremely important for an Arsenal team that looks devoid of ideas. They are four points behind Tottenham, who are their main challenges for the top four positions, with only eight matches remaining in the campaign.
As a result of this latest setback, Wenger has confirmed that the player will not be available for the matches against Reading and West Brom. However, he is expected to be back for the match against Norwich.
“We deferred his rehab and gave him one more week. I believe [he will return] in two weeks. That means not [West Brom], the game after. It is not better, not worse. Because it was an inflammation of the bone and we had such history with him, we are a bit more cautious than you would be with you or with me. We’ll rest him when it’s needed. He has regular scans and as soon as we have an alert we will respect it no matter what is at stake,” said Wenger.
