‘Did Theresa May Say This?’ ‘Oh Perleaase!!!!’ – Fans Highly Sceptical As Pellegrini Confirms Star’s Injury Comeback

West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere is closing in on a return to first-team action, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.

The 27-year-old played against Leicester City’s Under 23s last Sunday and he is expected to play one more U23 game before making his comeback for the senior side.

Pellegrini says he is optimistic that Wilshere will be back in his first team plans very soon:

“Jack Wilshere is almost ready. He played one game for the U23s last week and hopefully, he’ll play another one. Next week, I think that he’ll be working 100 per cent with our squad.”

Fans on Twitter are very sceptical over whether the former Arsenal player will stay fit for very long:

Wilshere’s first season at the Hammers has been an unmitigated disaster due to his injury problems. An ankle injury has effectively limited him to just five appearances all campaign.

There was a worry that the midfielder could miss the rest of the season with the medical team reportedly worried that he was still feeling discomfort in his ankle despite having surgery.

However, his appearance for the U23s last week suggests he is now finally ready to return to action.
