Wenger reaches compromise with Hodgson

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reached a compromise with England over Jack Wilshere's involvement in next week's friendly against Sweden - but admits he would have preferred if the midfielder was not involved at all.

England boss Roy Hodgson has wasted no time in bringing Wilshere back into the senior squad, despite the 20-year-old only just returning to action with the Gunners after more than a year on the sidelines. Wilshere has experienced niggling injury problems which stem back to an ankle problem initially suffered when winning his fifth cap against Switzerland at Wembley in June 2011.

"You know what I think with Jack, that it is early for him. I had Roy Hodgson on the phone, we found a good understanding and a good compromise," said Wenger, who was at Great Ormond Street Hospital on Thursday afternoon along with Wilshere to help open the Arsenal Lung Function Unit.
