Arsenal star backs Wilshere to improve

Arsenal midfield Mathieu Flamini has heaped praise on Jack Wilshere after the Englishman's goal secured them a point against West Brom, stating that the youngster will only get better.

The Frenchman, who re-signed for the Gunners on a free transfer after a sabbatical at AC Milan, was quick to champion Wilshere's maturity and coolness under pressure, and insisted that he will only get better with age.

Wilshere was the target of a series of repeated fouls from the West Brom players during the weekend fixture, but despite being frustrated for large periods of the game, it was his goal that allowed Arsenal to level the scores and leave the Hawthorns with a point.

Flamini has backed his team-mate to shine in the future, and believes that despite the fact he is already an influential member of the first team squad, he will grow to become an even better player with time.

"It is not that easy when you are talented and trying to make the difference and of course it’s sometimes difficult to keep your calm," said the Frenchman.

“But he did that at West Brom, very well. It meant that when he had the chance to score, he took it and it was an important goal for us. Jack is a very talented player, with a lot of quality, and he plays in a great team.

"He has everything to be successful. He has proven to everyone that he has done well game after game. He is doing well.

“Of course he will improve. He is still very young and has a lot to learn but what he is doing already is incredible. Everyone at the club is very happy with him.”

Flamini is himself enjoying a tidy run of form since his return to Arsenal, and although the decision to bring him back to the club was initially chastised by many quarters, it looks as though it could have been an astute call in the long-run.
