Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere returned to action just a fortnight ago after spending 14 months on the sidelines due to a recurring ankle injury. With a lack of fixtures owing to the international weekend, Arsenal are now planning to arrange some special games to help the midfielder recover faster, reported the Metro.
The 20 year-old showed positive signs when he featured for the Under-21s against West Brom and Reading, even setting up the goals in their 2-0 victory over the Royals. However, with a lack of fixtures for the next two weeks, the coaching staff are concerned that the playerâ€™s recovery could suffer a setback from the break. As a result, Under-21s manager Terry Burton is attempting to arrange special matches to ensure that the midfield star can return to first team action soon.
Burton told Arsenal Player, â€œWe haven't got an Under-21 fixture until a fortnight today. But we'll probably try and rearrange a game of some sort next week to keep them going.â€
Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen was also optimistic of the playerâ€™s return, telling Arsenal's website, â€œJack is working on his match-fitness and that is the most important thing. I think in the future he will lift the team. I am really happy he is coming back now.â€
Arsenal fans will be joyous at the return of their prodigal star and will remain hopeful that the youngsterâ€™s inclusion in the first team can help the team build on what has been a decent start to the season.
