The Gunners star is set for another spell on the sidelines as scans have revealed that he suffered a hairline crack to his left fibula following an accidental clash in training and could be out of action for at least two months.
The 23-year-old has been plagued with a number of injuries throughout his relative short career and was ruled out for five months last season after undergoing surgery on his left ankle after coming off second best in a strong challenge with Manchester United defender Paddy McNair at the Emirates Stadium last November.
Many have expressed their sympathy over the news including Sheringham, who has put aside his loyalties to fierce rivals Spurs and has wished Wilshere the best of luck in his recovery and says the midfielder is short of luck at the moment:
“I feel desperate for him to be honest, because all you want as a young lad is to have a run in the team and feel fit and fresh and ready to go, and he has not had that in a few seasons,” the former United striker told talkSPORT.
“I wish him well in his comeback,” Sheringham added.
