Wilshere set to return to training in one month

The Gunners have been handed a major injury boost as Medics say Wilshere is set for return to action in one month.

English midfielder Jack Wilshere got his latest ankle injury during training session at the start of July. The initial reports by Arsenal medical team claimed that the 23-year-old will be out for two months. However, Wilshere went to see a specialist last Thursday and the medical team have assured his return one month ahead of the schedule.

Before Sunday’s season opening match at home to West Ham, Wenger said:

“Jack learns. He is intelligent. But I also believe that your body settles down at the age of 23. I have seen many, I have developed many, many young players and many of them were injury-prone at the ages of 19, 20 and 21.

“You think they will always be injured. [Then] at 23, suddenly their body adapted and they went through their whole career. We had many of them. Ashley Cole had ankle problems, Gael Clichy had surgeries, Robin van Persie as well before the age of 23. After that, they settle.”
