Wenger admits feeling responsible for injury-plagued duo

Arsene Wenger has revealed his feeling of responsibility for the injury-stricken careers of two former Arsenal stars, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.

The former Arsenal boss gave many opportunities to youngsters during his tenure in north London, but perhaps two of the most highly regarded to break through were Ramsey and Wilshere.

The Wales international currently finds himself at Juventus, and whilst playing for one of the most prestigious clubs in the world on big wages might not seem like the worst thing, the midfielder struggles for regular game time as a result of recurring injury problems.

Wilshere on the other hand is currently without a club after leaving Bournemouth at the end of last season. The 29-year-old enjoyed a good run of games for the Cherries last year but is yet to find a home for the new season.


Five players who shouldn’t be their club’s highest earners


Now Wenger, who is currently in the news for his idea of a biennial World Cup, has admitted feeling responsible for how the duo’s careers have panned out.

Speaking to The Telegraph ), Wenger said. “I see more positivity. Before there was more kicking and I must say the media allowed that. The VAR has brought more respect for the offensive game.

“Sometimes the more technical guys were kicked. Why? It was not very encouraging. We have moved forward from that.

“We (Arsenal) always tried. It was a frustration sometimes. When I look back at players like (Jack) Wilshere, (Aaron) Ramsey who have been injured early in their career and when you are a manager you feel very responsible for that.”

Wenger, currently serving as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, also revealed

When asked if 2016 was the last time the Football Association came calling, he said: “Yes, I think so.”

The Frenchman also praised current manager Gareth Southgate, saying he “likes” the 51-year-old.
