Jack Wilshere surgery rules star out for three months

Arsenal have today revealed today that England midfielder Jack Wilshere will have to undergo another operation, after suffering an injury setback in his recovery from a leg fracture.

Arsene Wenger played down the injury as not too serious last week, but Wilshere’s return from the hairline fracture to his left fibula has been estimated at three months after the 23-year-old was sent to see a specialist to determine the best course of action.

This latest crisis for the Gunners raises questions once again over Arsenal’s ability to rehabilitate their injured players, with striker Danny Welbeck another star to have been ruled out for a lengthy period despite his injury not initially sounding too serious.

Of course, Arsenal have rejected any suggestions that their rehabilitation procedures aren't correct or up to standard. The club said Wilshere's injury was assessed by specialists and they were all under the impression that the injury would heal naturally.

Fans and players were hopeful that the box-to-box midfielder would make a return after the recent international break, but it's now highly unlikely the Englishman will play again even before the new year.

While there is no doubt over his ability to participate in the Euro 2016 finals, Hodgson will understandably be frustrated that a key midfielder is out of England's four international games scheduled before Christmas.

Frustration will also be felt by Arsenal fans who, despite holding Wilshere in high regard, will be irritated that their injury-prone star will once again be out-of-action for a substantial period of time.

There is little doubting that Wilshere has the ability to become a top-class midfielder - or maybe even world-class - but until he manages a sustained period of playing time he might never unlock his vast potential.
