How did Arsene Wenger react when he saw the picture of Jack Wilshere ice-skating?

The injury-prone midfielder took a daring trip on the ice over the weekend

We’ve all seen the picture of Jack Wilshere ice-skating over the weekend, and we all thought exactly the same thing. 

For a player who’s been injured more times than Evel Knievel, that’s pretty brave.

Even Wilshere thought so. 

And after seeing the picture on social media, we openly wondered what Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger must’ve thought when he saw his injury-prone midfielder going for a skate.

The England international has only just returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and has made a handful of appearances for the Gunners this season.

In fact, he’s very much in-line to start for Wenger’s side in tomorrow’s Europa League clash against BATE.

Speaking about Wilshere’s ice-skating antics ahead of the game at the Emirates, Wenger said: “Honestly, it’s not bad for your balance but overall it’s not ideal – for the way you fall down as well.

“For a footballer I don’t think it’s great.”

“I just heard about it, but you can do ice-skating by bringing your child on and making sure nothing happens to them.

“Ice-skating violently, I don’t think he did that.”

Nah, it didn’t look too violent, did it?

Wenger didn’t mind!

Hopefully, Jack will take it easy with the extreme sports as he looks to continue exerting himself back into the Arsenal line-up.

And with a World Cup taking place over the summer, he’s surely got one eye on making a return to the national set-up – granted he remains fully fit.
