Arsenal will go into the new season full of confidence after beating Chelsea 4-1 on penalties in the Community Shield.
The Gunners were deserved winners, with the Premier League champions looking a shadow of the outfit that impressed so much last term.
After the final whistle, Arsene Wenger reflected on his squad size and admitted he won’t be able to keep all of his 33 players on – and crucially, he finally shed some light on Jack Wilshere’s future.
Wenger was quoted via Goal:
“We need to sit down and see where he will go.
“I made him start at a very young age and want him to have the career he is capable of. But he has gone through difficult times. I want him to play somewhere. We have to decide that later.”
It certainly doesn’t sound like the midfielder will be kept on after struggling to make an impact in his season-long loan at Bournemouth.
The 25-year-old has always looked like a player with potential, but sadly injuries have taken their toll on his career.
While he’s back training with the club for pre-season, it definitely looks as though his days in north London are numbered, so long as Arsenal can find another club to take him on.
