New, comments

The once promising midfielder might be out the door.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Jack Wilshere has hinted his Arsenal career may be over.

According to Wilshere, being left out of a recent England squad was the “final straw” that pushed him to pursue a move to a team where he could get more playing time.

'There were a lot of midfielders and the manager brought another one in . . . I was thinking I was at a stage of my career where I needed to play. I'm 24 and I've already missed too much football, and if I want to get to where I want to be it'd be no good coming off the bench in every game.”

If Wilshere’s Arsenal career is indeed over, it would, to say the least, be a disappointing turn of events for the former PFA Young Player of the Year award winner, who joined the club’s academy at nine years old and went on to be one of its most touted prospects.

Oh well, Jack, we’ll always have that 2011 home match against Barcelona.
