Released West Ham midfielder, Jack Wilshere, has described out-of-favour Arsenal player, Mesut Ozil, as one of the club best players.

BBC presenter, Gary Lineker, quoted Ozil’s statement and wrote: “Every footballer wants to play.

“Not being able to, regardless of salary, is soul-destroying.”


Released West Ham midfielder Wilshere, who spent ten years at Arsenal from 2008 and has seen his career cruelly curtailed by injuries rather than internal fallouts like Ozil, replied to Lineker saying: “Spot on Gary, especially when you are the best player!”
