Wilshere To Leave Arsenal

Jack Wilshere, more likely to be spotted in the smokers booth at his local hospital than on the football pitch, has decided to leave Arsenal. The 26 year old, who somehow managed to blag his way into the England team in the past, had been upset about being unable to hold down a first team place and being asked to take a pay cut. After no one else was willing to even come close to offering the terms Arsenal would, he did accept that he would have to take a pay cut, but refused to accept that his inability to stay fit would mean new manager Unai Emery would not consider basing the team around his 'talents'. Wilshere said on social media: "I felt that I was ultimately left with little choice but to make the decision that I have due to purely footballing reasons. Such was my desire to stay that I had in fact recently agreed to sign a financially reduced contract in order to commit my future to the club. My intention throughout these discussions has always been to remain an Arsenal player. I have been on the books at Arsenal for 17 years and have always felt part of the fabric of the club. Following my meeting with the new manager I was made aware that although the reduced contract offer remained, it was made clear to me that my playing time would be significantly reduced should I decide to stay. I am sure everyone can understand that at this point in my life and career I need to be playing first-team football and following my meeting with Mr Emery I came away feeling that it would be very difficult for me to do so at Arsenal. Given this, I feel I have no option but to pursue other opportunities in order to progress my career on the pitch."
