Arsene Wenger was surprised to see Jack Wilshere ice-skating, admitting it’s “not ideal” given his injuries. But he doesn’t believe the midfielder went too far.
Wilshere posted a picture of himself, his wife and two kids enjoying a bit of ice-skating in London. Along with the picture was the caption: “Positive week, managed to get through 20 minutes of ice skating without getting injured.”
His words echo the sentiments of the Arsenal supporters, who must have feared for the state of ankles. Arsene Wenger was certainly surprised to see him there given his lengthy history with ankle issues.
However, while he doesn’t think the activity is ideal for footballers, he doesn’t think Wilshere went too far. “It’s not ideal, honestly, but for your balance it is not bad,” Wenger said, as reported by The Sun.
“For a footballer, I don’t think it is great but it depends what you do. I don’t know exactly [what he did on the ice]. You can do ice skating and make sure nothing happens. Ice skating violently, I don’t think he did that.”
