Jack Wilshere risks not to play this season anymore
West Ham are worried that midfielder Jack Wilshere will no longer appear on the pitch this season due to chronic ankle problems.
Having played four games for his new club after becoming a free agent from Arsenal, Wilshere got an injury already in September. Then Jack underwent a minor surgery on his left ankle.
After recovering from that surgery, on December 1, he entered the field in the final five minutes of the match against Newcastle, but turned for medical help again with a complaint about right ankle pain.
After two months of intensive treatment, the 27-year-old Englishman is still not ready to return to the field. Under the most optimistic scenario, Wilshere will be ready to play football in 6-8 weeks, the Daily Mail reported.
However, a less pleasant scenario is not excluded, given Jack’s previous problems. Wilshere may need another surgery, in this case the recovery time will take many months.
