Jack Wilshere has spoken to the press and finally revealed that his knee injury is not serious, Wilshere feels he may even be able to make an appearance as the reds make a trip from Merseyside to open their premier league season on Sunday at the Emirates.
The 24 year-old suffered a ‘slight patella problem’, which ruled him out of Arsenals remaining pre-season matches but the England midfielder has now returned to training ahead of Sunday’s game.
Wilshire acknowledged that he may not be involved in Sunday’s game but should Arsene Wenger need his help he is ready to go.
‘I picked up a little knee injury, nothing serious, and now I am back in light training and am looking forward to the start of the Premier League,’
Wilshere adamant to make a full return, believes he knows his body and knows exactly what to do should a little injury knock him back.
‘As I said, I’m feeling good and we’ll see at the weekend, that might come too soon but if the boss picks me, I’ll be ready.’
Wenger also discussed Jacks recent injury problems and revealed he was impressed with his progress. The Frenchman will want to see one of his star players back to full fitness as arsenal once again seek silverware.
‘He had a little setback recently but its looks very minor and of course for us to have a great season it is important to have Wilshere.’
