Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is livid with Daniel Agger’s challenge on Jack Wilshere that will cause the English midfielder to miss up to 6 weeks, Mirror reports.
Agger’s challenge on Wilshere during England’s 1-0 friendly win over Denmark caused a hairline fracture in the Englishman’s left foot, which has left the Gunner’s boss fuming.
Wilshere will not only miss Arsenal’s intense fixture run-in, but he will also be in the fight against time to feature in this summer’s World Cup.
England boss Roy Hodgson has already stated he will not be repeating the mistake of bring half-fit players into the competition.
“With the number of people knocking quite heavily on the door, it would be a bit sad to leave out someone who is 100 per cent fit and in fantastic form, in favour of someone else who wasn’t fit and might just recover during the tournament,” Hodgson warned.
“I don’t think any player would expect that, or for me to show loyalty when they are not 100 per cent fit. Or to go there and not do a good job over someone who is 100 per cent fit and can do a good job.”
Agger, whose Liverpool side are also in the title challenge, defended his tackle in which was given as a foul.
“I was going for the ball and I think I got the ball, but the referee didn’t,” he said.
Wilshere is afraid that history is bound to repeat itself after an injury also forced the midfielder out of England’s Euro 2012 squad.
