Jack Wilshere To Have Minor Knee Surgery

I'm starting to forget you, Jack

Jack Wilshere had hoped to return to pre-season training on July 9th, but that date is now under question after it was revealed that the 20 year old must undergo minor knee surgery.

However, his ongoing rehabilitation has seen a long-standing slight issue with his patella tendon in his left knee flare up.

As a result, Jack will travel to Sweden for a minor procedure on his left knee in the next few days.This procedure is not expected to significantly affect Jack's comeback ahead of next season

The fact that Wilshere has suffered such a problem is not surprising; often, during rehab, injuries will flare up because of the time away from increased physical activity. What it does mean, though, is that Arsenal cannot rely too much on Wilshere next season. He'll be returning after an absence of 14 months, a period longer than Aaron Ramsey's return from a broken leg. A season of fits and starts is likely for Wilshere, which is why Arsenal must strengthen their midfield; he, and Abou Diaby, cannot be relied upon to consistently start games next season.
