Arsene Wenger has dismissed newspaper reports that he is angry with the FA and confirmed that Jack Wilshere is not injured.
Articles in both the Daily Mirror and Daily Mail this morning had claimed that the boss was furious with Roy Hodgson for playing the Arsenal midfielder in both of England’s friendlies against Chile and Germany, however, speaking to Arsenal Player this afternoon Wenger set the record straight:
“First of all Jack is not injured, that was not the right information. Secondly, I have no problem with the FA, they respected completely what they told me and it was [for Wilshere] to play in one game and be on the bench in the other.
“They did that very well. So there is no misunderstanding there. Exactly [they did what we agreed].”
Earlier in the day Wilshere had taken to Twitter to criticise the @MirrorFootball account for publishing what he deemed lies.
Presumably Jack will therefore be involved in Saturday’s game with Southampton.
