Wilshere’s embarrassing Twitter blunder


ARSENAL’S Jack Wilshere has been mocked on social media after posting a photoshopped image on Twitter which had originally been designed to celebrate Manchester United’s ‘Holy Trinity’.

Following his side’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, which almost certainly ended their hopes of winning the Premier League, the midfielder posted an uplifting image with the words ‘This is our club, today and forever’ with the Arsenal badge underneath and a silhouette of three people.

But unfortunately for the injury-prone Wilshere, fans quickly realised the three people were in fact three of Manchester United’s greatest ever players – the late George Best, Sir Bobby Charlton and Denis Law.

The trio are immortalised in a statue outside Old Trafford to celebrate their achievements, having scored a combined 665 goals between them for the club.

Not surprisingly Wilshere – who has never been far from controversy – was the recipient of plenty of ribbing by bemused Twitter followers.


One supporter said: “Jack Wilshere posts an Arsenal photo with the United Trinity in it?”, while someone else tweeted: “Someone should probably tell Jack Wilshere that the statues are three Man Utd legends…

Another told the England international to “concentrate on the football rather than making a clown of yourself.”

Meanwhile, Wilshere – who hasn’t played for Arsenal this season after sustaining an injury in pre-season – could return to the Gunners’ first-team squad for the Premier League clash with West Brom on Thursday.
