Wilshere Warned by UEFA

Wilshere Warned by UEFA

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has received a warning from UEFA over comments he made on his twitter feed in December, 2011. the 20 year old made some seemingly innocuous comments about teammate Emmanuel Frimpong being "worth a cheeky £10" to open the scoring in Arsenal`s final Champions League group game with Olympiacos.

Wilshere did not play in the match due to injury, but when a Frimpong shot went close in the first half, Wilshere jokingly tweeted, "Frimmy nearly won me some money there!" Players gambling on games is strictly forbidden by UEFA legislation. Wilshere did clarify later that evening that he hadn`t actually placed the bet, "I didn't actually bet on the game. I know we're not allowed to! I was only messing just to be clear.'

Somehow UEFA felt that this required a seven month long investigation (!) and a statement released today said they had written to Wilshere to warn him and remind him of his responsibilities, 'The player has been warned for being in breach of the principles of integrity of matches and competitions. The disciplinary measure was a warning.' The mind boggles as to how this inquiry took 7 months but at least UEFA are putting time and resource into the real issues……………..
