England manager Fabio Capello was full of praise for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere as he described him the best young player in the world.
Ahead of Saturday’s game against Wales, the Italian explained that the 19-year could be in the starting line-up as he is good, plays without fear and has the right confidence. The former AC Milan, Juventus, AS Roma and Real Madrid manager also praised the leadership of the midfielder, incredible for such a young man.
On whether the Arsenal man is the future of English football, Capello explained that he might as well be the present as well as the two games against Barcelona demonstrated in the Champions League, games in which the Englishman was simply superb.
On Wilshere, Capello said:
Yes, yes [he will play for England], because he is good, because he plays without fear, and with confidence.
Also for someone so young, he is a leader. It is incredible. I never saw someone so young be a leader on the pitch. It is incredible.
Wilshere, after the game against Barcelona, he has arrived. He has arrived. You can understand the value of that sort of performance. As a young player, I think he is at the top, not only in England but Europe and the world.
