Gunners manager angry after midfielder limps off at Sunderland.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to be furious with England head coach Roy Hodgson after key midfield player Jack Wilshere was injured again during Saturday’s 1-0 win at Sunderland.
The 21-year-old limped off with a thigh problem ten minutes into the second half at the Stadium of Light, just days after Wilshere played the full 90 minutes of England’s 2-1 friendly win over Brazil at Wembley.
And Wenger feels that his England counterpart broke a promise not to play the player for the whole game against the South Americans.
“Arsene is livid,” an Emirates insider revealed to the Sun.
“He was led to believe Wilshere would not play the full 90 minutes.
“But that is exactly what happened and then he breaks down at Sunderland.
“Jack only returned in October after being sidelined for 18 months, so we have to be careful with him.
“Arsene feels the fact he was over-used for England contributed to his injury at the Stadium of Light.”
After the match had ended, Wenger said: “Jack got a big kick on the thigh.
“He couldn’t walk and he doesn’t walk properly now. Again, it is a question of four or five days.”
