Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is determined not to follow friends Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri as he wants to be a Gunner for life.
Speaking to iFilm London, the Englishman declared that throughout the years he enjoyed the talent of the likes Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and Cesc Fabregas and how his objective is to become an Arsenal great like these three and to also be part of something special together with other young players like Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs.
Asked about his return to action, the 19-year old explained that he is frustrated for having to spend so many months on the sidelines adding however that he should resume training in December and make his long-awaited comeback when manager Arsene Wenger gives him the nod.
And on the West Brom win, an easy 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium, Wilshere concluded by saying that the Gunners are improving every week as he described the win as one of the best performances of the season and one to use to continue the rise in the table.
On his future and his injury, the youngster said:
[If I can promise to stay with Arsenal 'forever'?] I promise that, yeah. I’ve been at the club since I was nine and learned to love it.
From the [Patrick] Vieira days, to [Dennis] Bergkamp, [Cesc] Fabregas, I’ve watched them come through and move on.
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.
[My injury?] It’s going really slow at the minute and obviously I’m really frustrated. I should be back in training by mid-December, then I can crack on and it’s up to the boss when he picks me.
It’s massively frustrating, especially after last year when we were so close to winning a trophy.
We beat Barcelona at home and everything seemed to be going well and it ended sadly.
I was looking forward to this season, I really thought we could push on and do something.
To get a setback is massively frustrating but I’ll be back in December and hopefully we can push on from then.
We seem to get better and better every week. We had a bad start to the season and everyone knows that. I’m not going to lie and say we did well, we didn’t.
The boys had to play together, they’re new players some of them. We seem to be getting better and better every week.
Today [vs WBA] was probably one of our best performances. We passed it around like the old Arsenal and we seem to be back to winning ways.
