Alan Shearer absolutely destroys 25-year-old after Tottenham win against Bournemouth
By Amir Mir
Alan Shearer has absolutely destroyed Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wilshere after his side were beaten 4-0 by Tottenham on Saturday afternoon.
The 25-year-old, who is on loan from Arsenal, produced a poor display during his 56 minutes on the field before he went off injured to the ironic cheers and delight of the home support.
At the start of the campaign, Wilshere struggled for game time at the Emirates and was subsequently loaned out to Eddie Howe’s side during the summer transfer window.
Since his move, Wilshere has started 22 league matches, a decent amount for a player who has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons.
However, former Premier League winner Shearer has not been impressed with the Arsenal man at his new club as he feels he has gone backwards in his career.

“That move to Bournemouth was meant to reignite his career but I think it’s created more issues,” Shearer told Match of the Day which aired on BBC One on Saturday evening.
“22 league starts, no goals and two assists. It hasn’t got well for him.”
Over the course of the season, Wilshere has played 29 Premier League matches, including two for his parent club.
He has not participated in cup competitions for his current team as he has failed to score a goal during his loan spell at Dean Court.
Wilshere’s contract at the Emirates is up at the end of the season and the 34 cap England man is yet to sign a new deal.
As a result, it has left his future in the summer up for question as he could easily remain at Arsenal next season or find himself playing for another English Premier League club.
