23-year-old Arsenal midfielder jack Wilshere has admitted his latest ankle injury is the toughest he has ever faced.
The England international is expected to be back next month and he feels good and he can’t wait to return back to action.
‘It’s going well,’ Wilshere told Arsenal.com.
‘I’m working as hard as I can to try to come back. I know what it takes because unfortunately I’ve been injured a few times in my career and I know what it takes to come back. I’m not going to rush it. I’ll make sure my body’s right and at the moment I’m feeling good.
‘Mentally this one has been the toughest to take because I had a big injury last year, came back, got myself fit, back in good form, played for England.
‘Then I cut my holiday short for two weeks and came in to try and get myself right for this season.
‘I thought, “This season I need to be fit for the whole season and go into the Euros with a whole season behind me”.
‘Unfortunately on the last day of pre-season I got injured so it was probably the toughest one for me to take.’
