Jack Wilshere vows he will never leave Arsenal
Tuesday 08 November 2011
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has promised he will never leave the club.
The England midfielder, 19, wants to play a central role in bringing success to the north London club as Arsene Wenger continues trying to mould a team of young talents to end the club's trophy drought.
He told iFilmLondon.com: "Can I promise I will be at Arsenal for ever? I can promise that, yes.
"I've been at the club since I was nine and I've learned to love it.
"From the (Patrick) Vieira days, to (Dennis) Bergkamp, (Cesc) Fabregas, I've watched them come through and move on.
"But now there's a crop of new players, (Aaron) Ramsey, myself, Kieran Gibbs, hopefully we can really create something special.
"I love the club and I want to be part of its future."
Wilshere has yet to play for the club this season due to a stress fracture to his right ankle but is set to step up his training, six weeks after undergoing an operation on the injury.
"As I said had 6 week X-ray earlier and all going well," he wrote yesterday on his Twitter page.
"I can start to work a bit harder now."
