Daily Arsenal: Jack Wilshere’s Non-Injury Injury Row

by | 22nd, November 2013

ON Thursday, the Daily Mail led its sports coverage with the news that Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere was crocked and in another “contentious” episode:

Jack Wilshere is involved in another club versus country row after suffering an ankle injury against Germany.

The story included the words “stunned” and “fear”.

One day earlier the Mail had written:

Wilshere’s injury storm: Arsenal stunned as England ignore plea to rest midfield ace

And then Arsene Wenger spoke, saying:

“First of all Jack is not injured, that was not the right information. Secondly, I have no problem with the Football Association. They respected completely what they told me and it was for Wilshere to play in one game and be on the bench in the other. They did that very well. So there is no misunderstanding there. They did exactly what we had agreed.”

Such are the facts…
