Gunners boss critical of England setup.
Roy Hodgson and England are wasting the potential and talent of Arsenal star Jack Wilshere by playing him in a deeper midfield role, according to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
The Daily Mail reports that Wenger has questioned Hodgson’s use of Wilshere as a defensive player, insisting that he has the attributes to show his quality more with a role in the final third of the pitch.
Wilshere has played in a number of different positions throughout his career, but the Frenchman sees his future as a more attacking player, and has hinted that he is unhappy with how England are using him at the moment.
“I personally prefer Jack Wilshere in a more advanced position than in a deep-lying role as a midfielder,” he said.
“If it works [playing deeper], it works and I am very happy for him but I think he is a guy capable of creating danger in the final third. He is provocative in his dribbling and I would like to use this quality.”
