Wenger Backs Wilshere After Keane's Comments

Arsenal

Arsenal reached the last 16 despite losing 2-1 at home to Swedish club Ostersunds on Thursday

Wenger said: "That decision doesn't depend only on me".

Wilshere has previously stated that he would be willing to extend his stay in north London, as a product of Arsenal's academy system.

Jack Wilshere should be less anxious about stinging criticism from Roy Keane and more about where he might fit into the Arsenal side.

But now Jack has the luxury of finding out what other clubs could offer him if he DOESN'T accept Arsenal's offer, and it could simply be "too little too late" again from Wenger.

The England midfielder was named captain for the evening, but he was uninspiring with his performance and Keane said after the game that Wilshere is one of the most overrated footballers in the world.

'No energy, no desire, you're looking for your senior players to lead by example. Was it one of his better performances?

The Gunners survived an unexpected scare at the Emirates and were made to thank their lucky stars for the three away goals they'd scored a week earlier.

The midfield stalwart criticised the players for starting the game slowly and agrees that when some blame has to go to the manager, the buck stops with the players to motivate themselves on the pitch. "It's not like a light switch, you can't just turn it on and off", Keane told ITV, as quoted by Goal. "Certainly not. Roy Keane knows that can happen to everybody". We were nowhere near good enough.

Wilshere has enjoyed a promising season this term and has seemingly put his injury woes finally behind him.

However, the team's complacency was obvious from the first whistle, and they will need a massive improvement in form for Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
