Jack Wilshere revealed that he will be training with Arsenal as his former club supports him before he decides about his future in the game. Wilshere has been a free agent after his contract with Bournemouth expired at the end of last season. The midfielder has had a career ridden with injuries and was training with Como in Serie B due to a lack of offers. He also spoke about the impact it has had on his mental health but was happy when Mikel Arteta said the doors at Arsenal were always open.
“What you should believe is that we want to help Jack prepare for his next stage, physically, mentally,” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said about Jack Wilshere. “He wants to do his coaching badges again and we are prepared to fulfill all the needs that he wants. That is basically the idea and it is no further than that. I am very happy to have him back. We had a conversation with Jack and understand the needs that he has, the period that he is going through and I think everyone at the club agreed it was the right moment to help him.”
“We sat down with him and we listened to what he wanted to do and what stage he is and we are prepared to do anything we can to help him,” he added. “He is going to be training sometimes with us. He is going to be around the place. He is going to be continuing the coaching badges that he is very interested in. (We will) try to get him fit, try to get his experiences across to our players, our young players, our academy and I think it is a great influence to have around.”
