Jack Wilshere set to be investigated by Arsenal

Published 11 Comments

Arsenal are set to begin an investigation into the latest Jack Wilshere smoking shame, according to the Daily Star.

The England international, who is currently out on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Manchester United last year, was photographed holding a shisha pipe at a nightclub.

Social media 

The photo was ultimately uploaded to Instagram, with it now appearing that the Gunners are set to investigate the incident. 

This is not the first time that Wilshere has been the subject of debate after previously being involved in two other high profile smoking incidents throughout his career. 

Unsurprisingly, Wilshere's lifestyle has been criticised by many throughout his short career so far, with the player having struggled to make strides at the Emirates, despite breaking onto the scene in style as a teenager.

In fact, it was only in July when Wilshere insisted that he regretted his previous smoking incident, insisting that he would learn from it.

At the time, the midfielder told reporters: "The smoking? Of course I regret it. I have been seen before doing it. I said then I made a mistake and I have made a mistake again. People make mistakes.

"I am young and I will learn from it. I realise the consequences it has and the effect on kids growing up.

"I have kids myself and I don't want them growing up to think their dad smokes and it is okay for a footballer to smoke, because it's not.

"It is unacceptable and I will accept the consequences and I will move on."

The return 

It now remains to be seen as to whether the Gunners hierarchy punish the crocked midfielder for his latest controversial act. 

Wilshere, of course, will be desperate to return to the pitch sooner rather than later, with the same report from the Daily Star revealing that he could return to the first-team setup by the end of the month.

The midfielder will no doubt be hoping to put his latest smoking controversy behind him by excelling on the pitch.
