Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere has had problems involving drinking and smoking which has caused Arsene Wenger on having to step up and establish meetings with the English player regarding his actions.
“The smoking? Of course I regret it. I’ve been seen before doing it. I said then I made a mistake and I have made a mistake again.People make mistakes.I’m young and I’ll learn from it. I realize the consequences it has and the effect on kids growing up. I have kids myself and I don’t want them growing up to think their dad smokes and it’s OK for a footballer to smoke because it’s not.’’ That was one of the statements released by Wilshere as he expressed his regrets.
After Wilshere said those things, it was believed that Jack Wilshere had stopped doing those harmful things such as drinking and smoking but a few weeks ago some pictures were leaked to the internet which displayed Wilshere with a shisha pipe in a nightclub as the player was still recovering from an ankle surgery that he sustained some time ago.
It has become more than clear that Arsene Wenger is not happy with these actions of Jack Wilshere but there are some managers that have actually admitted in saying that Wilshere’s lifestyle is no problem for them and this is the case of England’s Roy Hodgson.
“I am more interested in working with him to get some performances out of him that he gave us in the autumn, which were outstanding. It’s a part of my life, but it’s an even bigger part of Arsène’s.As far as I am concerned that is a club matter and Arsène dealt with it very, very well. If you are asking me, in an ideal world, is that an ideal thing to happen? Of course it isn’t, but we don’t live in an ideal world.I am happy it has been dealt with and it won’t occupy a lot of my time with Jack when I see him because we have a football match to win.’’ England’s Roy Hodgson said.
Roy Hodgson is not as interested in what happens in Jack Wilshere’s or any of the life of his players outside of the pitch in comparison to other managers. The manager of England continued on by saying that he is an ex-cigar smoker and Hodgson believes that shisha is not harmful as he defended Wilshere’s decisions and actions.
