Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has reportedly suffered another injury setback. The 24-year-old only just returned from a long injury lay-off to make the English team to Euro 2016. Arsene Wenger said the midfielder has been missing from the team’s training sessions due to a knee injury.
“Jack has a slight problem with his knee.
“We think it should not be very long. He should come back quickly, maybe next week.”
“It’s a slight patella problem but I think he should be with us on tour on Thursday”, he said.
Wilshere has managed 30 league appearances in just one of his eight seasons since breaking into the first team in 2008. The England international has suffered 11 major injuries since 2011, keeping him on the sidelines for a total of 890 days. Arsenal face Manchester City in Gothenburg on Sunday in their final pre-season clash before beginning their Premier League challenge against Liverpool at the Emirates on August 14.
