Jack Delighted To Sign On At 'Perfect' Arsenal
Following his signing of a new long term contract, Jack Wilshere has described Arsenal Football Club as 'perfect' for him.
Wilshere committed his future to the red and white half of North London for the foreseeable future after deciding the Gunners are perfect in every way, not least with the perfect manager for his development.
The 18 year old sounded as excited about his deal as we all are, as well as offering his thanks to everyone who has helped him over the years.
'Arsenal Football Club has been like a second home for me and my family since I was nine years old. To be offered a new contract means everything to me.'
'At this point in my career, when I'm only 18 years old and still learning so much about the game and myself, this is the perfect club, the perfect team-mates, the perfect fans, the perfect backroom staff and most importantly, the perfect manager to help continue that.
'I've got a long way to go before I can become the player I dream of becoming and I'm sure I'll keep making the odd mistake, but it is a massive help for me having a special manager like Arsène Wenger and so many quality team-mates and the unbelievable Arsenal fans around me. I believe there is a lot more to come from me.
'I've been at the Club for almost ten years already, so I would like to thank everyone that has been part of getting me this far, especially people like Liam Brady, Roy Massey and all his staff at the Hale End Academy. Also Neil Banfield, Steve Bould, Academy Coach Steve Leonard, Academy Scout Bob Arber, Assistant Head of Youth Development David Court, all the backroom staff, Arsène Wenger, all my team-mates and, of course, my family.'
Well that's just perfect then.
