As if the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had fewer things to worry about, midfielder Jack Wilshere has given him yet another headache after his off-field antics on Sunday.
The Gunners are currently 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City with a game in hand and are badly in need of results. They can do away without any off-field distractions but Wilshere seems to have other ideas.
The midfielder who has missed the whole campaign this season due to injury was reportedly involved in a bust-up outside a London nightclub in the early hours of Sunday The Mirror reported.
Shortly after 2 am, the midfielder was involved in an argument inside the club that spilled onto the street when he was thrown out of the club.
A promoter of the night club accused Wilshere of striking him and was heard confronting the player as he tried to walk away.
The England International crossed a thick line for football professionals but was not found to have breached any of the club’s rules. However, the manager is understood to be frustrated with the 24-year old after his repetitive antics.
In the past, the midfielder was caught smoking outside a nightclub and just a year late, he was seen smoking in a pool in Las Vegas.
Last year, he was pictured with a Sheesha pipe in one of the cities night clubs and was also warned by the police for an incident where he was accused of spitting on a Tottenham-supporting Taxi driver who refused to offer him a ride because he was too drunk.
It is now understood that Wenger is frustrated with the midfielder and that his patience is being tested.
However, the manager, speaking to the media about the midfielder insisted that he needs to ‘master his life’ and revealed that he will not be looking into the matter too keenly.
He will surely face the wrath of the manager after his latest antics and just returning to training after a lengthy injury lay-off, the timing of this incident is for the worse.
It will be interesting to see if Wenger has had enough of the injury-prone midfielder and wants to sell him this summer.
Do you think Jack Wilshere deserves a place in the Arsenal’s starting line-up next season?
