‘Such a Shame’ ‘We Should Have Never Got Him’ – West Ham Fans On Twitter Not Happy After Latest Injury Update

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has refused to rule out Jack Wilshere for the rest of the season despite no sign of the midfielder returning to action.

The former Arsenal player had ankle surgery in September but there have been complications that have led to pain in his foot joint, making it difficult to train.

There were reports that Wilshere had pulled up in training, further aggravating the problem, but Pellegrini denied the story:

“We must wait for Jack when he comes back and see how he feels. Those are all rumours, we cannot confirm 100 per cent.”

“He’s just been resting for a couple of months so it will not be easy for him to recover his best shape as a player, but the important thing for me is that he must feel that he is OK, and has no pain in his ankle. After that, we will see what happens with him.”

Fans on Twitter are disappointed with the latest developments:

Others feel it is the time to cut their losses:

Wilshere’s career has been littered with long-term injuries, but it is harsh to blame the player for something that is out of his control.

His body just seems ill-suited for the rigours of Premier League football, and if he does return to fitness, there will be question marks over how long he’ll last before he breaks down again.
