Jack Wilshere warned by Arsenal after FA Cup victory parade

Published Add your comment

Jack Wilshere has been reminded of his responsibilities by Arsenal officials after his behaviour at the club's FA Cup victory parade on Sunday.

During the parade the players had an opportunity to communicate to the fans from a platform via microphone.

Wilshere took this opportunity to lead the fans in some popular Arsenal chants, however, the ones he chose are offensive towards bitter rivals Tottenham and contained explicit language.

This isn`t the first time he has done this as he led similar chants last year after their FA Cup win over Hull City.

The microphone was taken away from Wilshere following his second chant but he managed to retrieve it and continued with one more chants.

Arsenal cut off their live broadcast on their media channel and the presenter immediately apologised for the players remarks and any offence caused.

A show of passion

I personally think it is not that bad an act from the player most Arsenal fans will agree with his views and will perform these chants on a match day on a regular basis.

He is showing to the Arsenal faithful that he knows how they feel and that he is one of them. He has been with Arsenal since the age of nine and is extremely passionate about the club.

With regards to Tottenham as a fan and a player this is his biggest club rivalry and no doubt there will be a section of Tottenham fans that may not have always been respectful towards him or the club.

Also it can't be forgotten that Tottenham fans aren`t exactly the kindest of supporters towards Arsenal players and fans and will have similar chants which they aim at Arsenal.

As I said I don`t think it should be a problem, I understand that Arsenal have to make a professional statement in saying they are disciplining the player.

However, from a fan or neutral's point of view he is just showing the passion for his team and bringing the fans into play at the parade.

The fans certainly seemed to enjoy and appreciate the gesture otherwise they wouldn't have joined in with such enthusiasm.
