Ian Wright sends heartfelt Twitter message to Arsenal ace after shattering injury blow

By Will Butcher

Ian Wright has sent his sympathies to Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere after the midfielder was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken leg.

Bournemouth confirmed on their website that the England international, who is currently on loan with the Cherries, had suffered the injury during Saturday’s 4-0 loss to Tottenham.

The former Gunners striker told Wilshere on his personal Twitter account that he was “rooting” for the 25-year-old star, who will now miss a total of five games with Eddie Howe’s side.

Wilshere was replaced by former Leeds midfielder Lewis Cook in the 56th minute of the defeat at White Hart Lane, after suffering the injury.

Bournemouth have revealed that x-ray scans immediately after the game showed no signs of injury, but further scans revealed a hairline fracture in Wilshere’s left fibula.

Arsene Wenger had previously sent Wilshere on loan to Bournemouth to prove his fitness after an injury-plagued career.

Wilshere has played 29 times this season for Bournemouth, but has failed to find the back of the net in a side that sit 16th in the Premier League.

In other Arsenal news, Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to Wilshere’s injury following his injury sustained against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
