Jack Wilshere suggested that he wanted to enjoy his football and move away from a team that plays to try and ‘nick a goal’ here and there after he left West Ham in January.

Well, Jack now looks rather silly doesn’t he?!

The injury prone midfielder said he would be silly to sign for a team in a similar position to West Ham five months ago, when speaking to the Super 6 podcast:

“With my experience now, I’d be silly to sign for a team in a similar position to West Ham. When there is a relegation battle, teams want to nick a point, nick a goal and try and defend. That’s not the type of player I am. I want to enjoy my football.”

Wilshere ended up joining Championship club Bournemouth, however! Oh the irony!

The Cherries lost to Brentford in the Championship play-off semi-final this afternoon.

So the south coast outfit will be condemned to another campaign in England’s second tier.

 

Wilshere, 29, is out of contract with Bournemouth in the summer. So it remains to be seen whether he will be offered a new deal with the club.

Jack Wilshere comments ripped apart by West Ham fans

The former Arsenal midfielder will surely be ruing the comments he made about the Hammers five months ago.

He really must have a hugely inflated opinion of himself if he thinks he’s too good for us!

When Jack left the London Stadium, David Moyes’s side went from strength to strength and we now have Europa League football within our grasp.

A point against Southampton on Sunday would secure a sixth placed finish.

And some West Ham fans took to Twitter after Bournemouth’s defeat to Brentford in the Championship play-offs today to wind up Jack Wilshere after the derogatory comments he made…
