When Jack Wilshere announced that he will be leaving Arsenal next month, many figures in the game wished him well for the future.
Unsurprisingly, Tottenham Hotspur fans took a different approach given the intense rivalry between the two clubs.
The Spurs following have a particular distaste for Wilshere due to the fact that he has come through the Gunners’ ranks and been at the club for 17 years.
Via Instagram, the 26-year-old, who has won two major trophies in his career, confirmed that his time at Arsenal has come to an end, despite the fact that he has been offered a new deal.
The England international revealed that he agreed to take a pay cut in order to stay at the Emirates, but new manager Unai Emery informed him that playing time would be limited.
Due to his desire for first-team football, Wilshere decided to part company with his boyhood club.
Tottenham fans took the opportunity to poke fun at the injury-plagued midfielder.
A poor man’s Mark Noble

Wilshere chucked out by ARSE! Emery has obviously had a chat with him and realised what we’ve all known for years. That he’s a total and utter….. #THFC

Not even fit to clean the boots of our great players. He might get a job cleaning the public bogs in Finsbury Park.
