Arsenal star could miss start of next season
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has accepted the FA’s charge of misconduct following his actions during the club’s trophy parade a fortnight ago.
The England international was clearly intoxicated as he made his way to the podium in front of the Emirates Stadium, where he lead chants for the thousands of Arsenal fans in attendance.
However, the chants he used contained explicit content and forced the FA into action after letting him off with a warning this time last year when he did the same thing for the 2014 FA Cup trophy parade.
Wilshere was quickly warned by Arsenal’s representatives and the midfielder himself then tweeted out an apology on his official account to those who were offended.
Wilshere said: “I have always had that bond with the Arsenal fans since I was young because I came through the club.
“I grew up at Arsenal and I love the fans but, believe it or not, I have actually got family who are Tottenham fans so it’s nothing personal against them, it was just a bit of fun.”
The 23-year-old’s punishment will now be decided by the FA after he accepted the charge. It could mean the midfielder misses the start of next season, however, it could also be a financial punishment.
