Jack Wilshere has finally revealed what prompted him to turn down offers from AC Milan and AS Roma in the summer and also why he decided to join Bournemouth on a season-long loan.
In a heartfelt interview, the English midfielder made clear the reason for joining Bournemouth in the summer, “It (not making the England squad) was the final straw. It hurt not being in there”
There were a lot of midfielders and the manager brought another one in. I’d been injured for a while, and I was thinking I was at a stage of my career where I needed to play.”
“I’m 24 and I’ve already missed too much football, and if I want to get to where I want to be it’d be no good coming off the bench in every game,” said the English midfielder
When asked about his future at Arsenal or elsewhere, he said: “I haven’t really thought about my future beyond getting a season under my belt and just trying to improve as a player. To be honest your question is a hard question to answer because I don’t know what to say. I genuinely don’t know if I am going to end up at Arsenal or somewhere else.”
