The tabloid reported that the midfielder was involved in an ‘altercation with two groups of men’ outside a well-known watering hole in the capital late on Saturday night.
The Mirror note that while Wilshere wasn’t breaking any club rules by being out, the fact he has once again made headlines for his off-field behaviour—particularly during such a critical time for the Gunners—is unlikely to go down well with his coach.
This isn’t the first time that Wilshere’s social habits have created a stir in the media, with the one-time golden boy of the English game previously drawing criticism for smoking in public, spitting on a taxi driver, and using vulgar language during a club parade.
The 24-year-old has been sidelined all season with a broken leg, and while he has recently returned to first team training, it remains to be seen when he will return to action—particularly in light of his latest misdemeanour.
