Arsenal youngster takes prestigious prize.
Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere has been named PFA Young Player of the Year.
The 19-year-old has produced some outstanding performances in the Gunners first XI in a campaign which has also seen him establish himself as a key player for the England senior team.
Three Lions head coach Fabio Capello has labelled Jack Wilshere the ‘future’ of England.
After receiving his award, Wilshere said: “It is my first full season and it is a massive award, especially from my fellow players. It is amazing.
“I am very proud to be the fifth recipient from Arsenal, it is good to keep this history going.
“Arsenal is a good club for bringing youngsters through and they keep proving it so I would like to thank the manager as well.” (Sky Sports)
Teenager Wilshere has continued to deliver on the undoubted potential he has and in the process earned his award for the best young player of the year and did so whilst going up against some very strong fellow nominees. The England international midfielder beat Everton full back Seamus Coleman, Gareth Bale (who picked up the Player of the Year award), Man City keeper Joe Hart, fellow Arsenal man Samir Nasri and Man United pair Nani and Javier Hernandez.
