Arsenal legend Liam Brady is confident Jack Wilshere can return from injury better than ever for club and country.

The Gunners' head of youth development has seen the midfielder quickly rise through the ranks to become an integral part of the side in north London, and also for Fabio Capello's England.

A serious ankle injury has forced the 19-year-old to miss the start of the current campaign at the Emirates, but Brady is convinced that exciting times lie ahead for the youngster, both this season and beyond.

“We all want to see him back quickly. I think the Arsenal team badly need him back, it’s going to be a better team with Jack in it," he told talkSPORT.

“As he gets older, he’s going to take over the mantle as the main man in the middle of the park, both for Arsenal and England, and we could do with getting him back as quickly as possible.

“He’s a talent everyone is missing at the moment. Jack has so much self-belief, he wants to get better at his craft and he’s going to work hard to make himself the best player he possibly can.

“I think that’s the exciting thing about him, he’s not going to rest on his laurels and get carried away with the fact he’s earning a lot of money, he’s going to get better and better.”

Current reports place Wilshere's return at February, although the teenager has made no secret of his desire to return quicker using Twitter.

"As I said had 6 week X-ray earlier and all going well. I can start to work a bit harder now," he said earlier in the month.
