Arsenal to reprimand Jack Wilshere over parade conduct

Published 11 Comments

Arsenal will remind Jack Wilshere of his responsibilities as both a professional and a role model after the midfielder once again hit headlines for his public conduct, reports Sky Sports.

The England international was filmed making expletive remarks about Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham during an open-top bus parade to celebrate their FA Cup triumph.

Using a microphone, Wilshere addressed the crowd and encouraged them to sing several x-rated songs.

Unsurprisingly, his actions hit headlines and caused a stir with plenty of parents, who were concerned his actions will leave their little ones astray.

It is the second time that Wilshere has addressed the Arsenal crowd with such comments having down exactly the same thing during their FA Cup victory parade last season.

Usual suspect

Now Arsene Wenger is set to sit down with Wilshere and remind him of his responsibilities as a public figure.

It is a conversation that Wenger and Wilshere have had many times since the 23-year-old emerged from the Hale End academy as an innocent 16-year-old.

Wilshere has been caught smoking twice in the last two-years and has also been photographed enjoying a shisha pipe in recent months.

Poor form

While Arsenal fans would find it easy to forgive these misdemeanours if Wilshere was at the top of his game, the fact is that this has been anything but a progressive season for him.

Once again, Wilshere succumbed to a serious ankle injury that kept him out from late November to early May.

During that time he managed to lose his place to Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, who retained their place in centre midfield until the end of the season.

Main man

Wilshere played just 14 minutes of the final at Wembley but managed to be the main man during the celebrations.

He was also photographed emerging from a nightclub at 6am on Sunday.


Were you annoyed by Wilshere's conduct during the Arsenal parade or was he just connecting with the fans?
