Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has stated that he will give £3,000 to charity if Tottenham finish higher in the league than his side, and has challenged the White Hart Lane faithful to donate to a good cause also.
Spurs’ 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday night lifts Harry Redknapp’s men up to third place, three points ahead of The Gunners with an extra game to play.
The England midfielder feels that talk of Spurs finishing above Arsenal is premature, and has issued a challenge to his rival fans on Twitter.
“All Spurs fans buzzing that they are ahead of us in the league (for once). Its a marathon, not a sprint!
“I tell you what; at the end of the season if Spurs finish above Arsenal I will give £3,000 to charity and if Arsenal finish above Spurs every Spurs fan that follows me must send me a pound each and I will give it to the Jack Marshall charity,” he stated on the social networking site.
Wilshere has been sidelined for the entire campaign due to injury, but is expected to return to action for Arsene Wenger’s side towards the end of the year.
