Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere is looking to get his career back on track with temporary side Bournemouth this season.
The England international has suffered a huge number of setbacks over the years, having looked earned first-team roles for the Gunners early into his career. Those regular starts dried up after a number of long spells on the sidelines however, and he has now decided to go out on loan for the campaign, as he looks to get regular first-team action once again, and potentially work his way back into Arsene Wenger and England’s first-team once again.
Jack made his debut for his new club yesterday, coming on from the bench, and was happy with the role he played in the win, despite not playing in his previously-admitted favoured central midfield position.
He said: “It was a good win for us, I thought we did very well and deserved the three points. It was great at the end to be on the pitch celebrating and applauding the fans — that’s what it is all about.
“Hopefully if we can keep performing like that and getting results then they will keep coming. It was also good to come on for my first minutes and get used to the way that the boys play. It’s similar to the way I am used to playing at Arsenal – I can fit into this team, I think.
“I came on in the No. 10 position and then moved to the right for the team. I can do that role and I can also play deeper. I am comfortable in all of those positions. Different games bring different problems, so we will see.
“The biggest aim for me, and I am sure everyone is aware of it, is to get as many games as possible. That was the idea coming here.
“If there’s any question mark over me I know it’s my fitness. So hopefully I can play as many games as possible, prove everyone wrong and re-kick my career.”
Will Wilshere manage to break back into the Arsenal and England starting XI’s?
