Wenger was left to watch on as his lifeless side scraped past Ostersunds

He had harsh words for Jack Wilshere, who put in a meek effort in the middle of the pitch despite being handed the captain's armband, and branded him "the most overrated player on the planet".

"Where do I start".

The former Manchester United captain slammed the midfielder last night following the Gunners' Europa League defeat to Swedish side Ostersunds.

The morning after the return leg defeat to Ostersund, the Arsenal manager conceded that Wilshere, who was named captain for the match, did not have his best game at the Emirates but insisted that Keane should know that no player is capable of delivering flawless performances all the time.

Ouch. Wilshere has never quite lived up to his potential in an Arsenal shirt, but he's by no means THE most overrated player in football - far from it.

Manager Arsene Wenger defended Wilshere in response to Keane's comments, though he conceded the England global did not play well.

"Personally, I rate Jack very highly". "When Wilshere is your captain.to me, he is probably the most overrated player on the planet".

'No energy, no desire, you're looking for your senior players to lead by example.

"And they got lucky with the result at the end of it". "Jack was in a team last night that didn't perform well". But if you start a game slowly, no matter how good you are, it's hard to get going. Was it one of his best performances last night? Certainly not. But Roy Keane knows that can happy to everybody'. "It's not like a light switch, you can't just turn it on and off", Keane told ITV, as quoted by Goal.

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.
