Jack Wilshere responds to Arsenal offer from Mikel Arteta as Gunners set to hold talks

Speaking as part of a mental health campaign between CALM and Original Penguin, Wilshere has expressed his troubles after being released by Bournemouth and training by himself.

He told Sky Sports: “When I spoke out that I was training on my own, that I was having these thoughts of: ‘what am I training for?’

“The response from everyone really – but mainly people in the game that I respect, ex-players, people that I look up to reaching out to me, saying you’ve still got a lot to give – it made me even more hungry to come back and just enjoy my football again.

“Us as players have to be willing to speak up, speak about our feelings and realise it’s not a weakness, it’s actually really brave and people will help you if you need help.”
