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.

"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.
