West Ham fans react to Wilshere’s latest injury setback

West Ham United midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered yet another ankle injury – which have dogged his career for years – and could be set to spend the next three months on the sideline, as reported by The Telegraph.

The 26-year-old joined the Hammers this summer on a free transfer having seen his contract with Arsenal expire after ten seasons in the first team set up in North London. The prospect of a lack of starts under new manager Unai Emery ultimately saw Wilshere leave the Gunners in favour of a switch to the London Stadium.

Wilshere started the first four Premier League games of the new season for West Ham, so this latest injury must come as a real blow. It will also provide some real selection headaches for manager Manuel Pellegrini, who still looks to be struggling to work out his best starting XI.

Meanwhile, plenty of West Ham fans have reacted to the news in a variety of ways. Whilst some are sure Wilshere will be greatly missed, others feel that his absence could be a blessing in disguise given his fairly sub-par performances so far. 

Here’s a look at some of the reaction…
