1 min read

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has insisted that he still wants to play football as he still has a lot to give before he retires.

Wilshere was considered to be one of the brightest prospects in world football when he first broke through at Arsenal.

Unfortunately, his career has been severely impacted by injuries.

Wilshere who is without a club is currently training at Arsenal.

Wilshere has told Sky Sports that he still has “something to prove” as a footballer:

“At the moment I am doing my coaching badges and the club is helping me with them and I am helping some of the Academy kids out as well.

“It is certainly something I enjoy and maybe something to look at in the future but for now I still want to play.

“I feel like I still have a lot to give and something to prove which is why I don’t want to finish playing now and start a coaching career just yet.

“It’s nice to be back seeing some old faces who I spent a lot of my life with.

“Fitness-wise I am getting there and it’s great to be back training with good players and the quality is only going to be beneficial for me moving forward.

“I’m there [at Arsenal] until January and there’s no news on any clubs but hopefully something will come up then.”
