Jack Wilshere sent off for Arsenal U23s after lashing out at opponent

Working his way back to fitness after a broken leg in April, the midfielder got his marching orders during this evening’s game with Man City.

JACK WILSHERE’S RECOVERY from a broken leg took an eventful turn tonight when the midfielder was sent off in the Arsenal Under 23 squad’s 4-3 win over Manchester City.

The 25-year-old has been playing with the Gunners’ U23s while working his way back from the injury suffered in April while on loan to Bournemouth.

After marking his return to the pitch against Derby County last week, Wilshere started against City on Monday. But his match came to a premature end when he was sent off in the 63rd minute after responding to a late challenge by shoving City opponent Matt Smith to the ground, prompting a scuffle between the teams.

The injury-prone England international is in the final season of his current Arsenal contract and has been linked with the likes of Newcastle United and Milan.
