Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has been tipped to become Arsenal’s manager in the future according to The Mirror.
The prediction – which was made by Arsene Wenger – may confuse many Gunners fans after Wenger sent the England international out on loan to Bournemouth last week.
However, Wenger stated that Wilshere has got all the attributes to make him a successful manager.
“Certainly one day he will be in my seat,” Wenger was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“He has a real football brain and understands football. You know really, it’s in his genes.
“I see him in the future at this club of course. He will spend his life in football, he is a football man.
“He has an eye on everybody, it’s in him. You have that or you haven’t got it, but he is a real football man.”
Arsenal boss Wenger currently has one year remaining on his contract with the north London based club. Wilshere made his debut for Bournemouth today during the Cherries 1-0 win over West Brom at the Dean Court stadium.
The 24-year-old’s career has been blighted by injuries, which have restricted him to just 159 appearances in eight years for the Arsenal. Last season, Wilshere missed the majority of the Gunners campaign due to an injury and made just three appearances.
Bournemouth take on the Premier League leaders Manchester City next weekend. Arsenal travel to France to take on PSG in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
