Jack Wilshere rediscovering his passion for football

0 24

Jack Wilshere says he’s rediscovered his love for football since taking on his first coaching job back at Arsenal.

The former Arsenal  midfielder Jack Wilshere is loving football back as he coaches the U18 of the club after been out of playing the game.

The former midfielder player has the chance to lead the Gunners’ Under-18s side to the FA Youth Cup final, as they face Man City in the semi-final tonight.

It’s a competition Wilshere won as a young Arsenal player, and he says he ‘absolutely loves’ it after making the decision to hang up his boots at the age of 30 last year following a stint with Danish side AGF.

“I love it, honestly,” he said of his first year in coaching.

“It’s given me back the real deep love for football and I didn’t know I’d lost it to be honest. I came back here last year and I was coaching a bit, training a bit.

“Then I had a decision to make. Do I want to go to Denmark? I loved it, I loved the country, the people, but I didn’t love it as much.

“When I came back here, and it might be because it’s Arsenal, I feel like people here genuinely care about me, which is nice.

“I love it. On the grass, trying to beat teams, trying to work out a way to play against teams, trying to develop an individual.

“Obviously, it was a different world I was entering. The corporate world, all the emails – but now I’m in a place where I’ve worked that out, I’ve structured my day better. The coaching stuff I absolutely love.”
