Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Jack Wilshere faces another month on the sidelines following an injury-ravaged season.
The midfielder has not played in the 2015-16 campaign as he broke his leg towards the end of the Gunners’ pre-season schedule in the summer.
It was thought that the England international was closing in on a comeback, but Wenger told reporters in Friday’s press conference that fans will have to wait a further “three or four weeks” to see Wilshere play again.
Injuries have hampered Wilshere’s progress in the last few years and since the 2010-11 campaign, the midfielder has not played more than 25 league games in a single season.
The 24-year-old’s current injury woes pours doubt over his inclusion in the England squad for this summer’s European Championships in France.
