Arsenal have denied that crocked midfielder Jack Wilshere will be out for five months after reports the England star’s recovery from an ankle injury had suffered an early setback.
Wilshere was injured in Arsenals 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last month and, after having successful surgery on his ankle ligaments, was expected to be out for around three months with a late February 2015 return date penciled in.
Reports, though, began to emerge early this morning quoting a Sun newspaper article that claimed Wilshere could now be out for five months at least meaning he would be on the sidelines until March at the earliest.
However, Arsenal have looked to dispel the rumours as quickly as possible with Head of Communications Mark Gonnella taking to Twitter this morning to rubbish the tabloid’s claims.
.@JackWilshere has not had a setback. On schedule for return to squad as per original plan. 12 weeks from injury.

Wilshere has struggled with numerous ankle problems throughout his career with this current injury setback being his eighth in that area of his body.
