Wilshere out for three months

WILSHERE-NASRILONDON, November 28- Arsenal have been dealt a fresh injury blow with the news that midfielder Jack Wilshere will miss up to three months with an ankle injury.

Having been plagued by injuries for much of his career, Wilshere suffered his latest knock in the Gunners’ 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday, limping off early on in the second half of the clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The England midfielder damaged ligaments in his left-ankle following a 50-50 challenge with Paddy McNair and has since undergone successful surgery on the problem.

A statement on the club’s official website reads: “Jack Wilshere has had successful surgery on his left ankle and will be out for approximately three months.

“The England international sustained the injury to his ankle ligaments during the Premier League match with Manchester United on Saturday at Emirates Stadium.

“An assessment with a specialist confirmed the need for an operation and the 22-year-old had successful surgery to his ankle in London on Thursday afternoon.

“Jack will now commence his injury rehabilitation programme with the Arsenal medical team.

“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
