Arsenal star and FA Cup winner Jack Wilshere has apologised after his victory celebrations on Sunday took a turn for the worse.

The 23-year-old, who has been sidelined for much of the season, has used his Twitter account to thank fans for helping make his dreams come true and to speak to those he had offended with his language.

"Sharing back to back Cup wins with so many amazing Gooners is a dream come true," he wrote. "Apologies if I upset or offended any of you with my celebrations.”

Wilshere has scored just two goals this season and seen the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Francis Coquelin take his place in the Arsenal starting XI.

The number 10, who remains a key player in the Arsenal squad, will be hoping to stay injury free in the build up to the start of the new season and try to re-gain a place in the side.
