Wenger Gives Jack Protection From Pearce

After missing the entire season for Arsenal, Jack Wilshere could also miss the start of pre-season after struggling to overcome his ankle injury.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is playing it safe with the English midfielder after Jack has suffer a few set backs. He was first ruled out for the season, then the Euros, followed by the Olympics and now possibly the start of the season.

'I do not want to set the Olympics as a target because I do not know whether Jack will be fit to start at the beginning of the season. When we start pre-season training on 9 July, if he can join in, then we have won the battle, but that is not guaranteed. " said the Gunners manager.

'You get the first knock, but think: 'OK, at least I will be ready for the Euros.' Then you have to convince him: 'Look my friend, it will not work for the Euros.' You knock him down again.'

'Then you set him another target - the Olympics. But if he doesn't make it, he will lose a complete appetite for rehab because it's difficult. Let's take our time and not set any specific targets."

The most important thing for him is to focus on day-to-day work and see if he can get better.'

This is of course Arsene Wenger not only protecting his asset but also the mind and his well being of his player, and I wouldn`t be the least bit surprised to see Jack ready for the start of the new season (that said I wouldn`t be surprised to see him ruled out till Christmas either).

Stuart Pearce has shown a tremendous amount of selfishness (not for the first time I might add) in his comments and statements regarding Jack Wilshere, you can almost feel his sense of self-importance radiating from his smarmy views that it matters not what Arsene or Jack think, he has the power to pick the player if he so wishes without even the slightest regard for the people who pay his wages or the player himself.

I don't blame AW at all. I cannot even begin to imagine the trauma this young lad must be going through not knowing when he would be able to play again. The poor lad has missed a whole season. We all know how that affected RAMBO. About Stuart Pearce, this are the same clowns that complain about ARSENAL all the time but are always at the Emirates.

Stuart Pearce is like some kind of comic book super villain who will stop at nothing to prove to his detractors just how awesome he is. He doesn't care who gets hurt in the process, he will show them who's boss. Pity he's a s*** manager.

Unless Pearce names Wilshere in the actual squad, we should relax till then.
