Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted that his recovery process from a leg injury has at times been frustrating.
Wilshere has been on the sidelines for six months after suffering a cracked fibula during training for the Community Shield against Chelsea.
Although the 23-year-old has returned to training, it remains unclear when he will be ready play with him working on his fitness level.
“Sometimes it’s been difficult to stay positive, especially after the injuries that I’ve had which have been frustrating, but as the injury goes, you get closer to full fitness and you see the light at the end of the tunnel, then you start to think about coming back and getting involved in the team,” Wilshere told Arsenal Player.
Arsenal have dropped down to fourth on the table after a string of subpar display that has left them without a win four games.
“We’ve had a strong season and we’re in a position this year where we can really go for it.
“In the past we’ve struggled around Christmas and before we’ve given ourselves no chance really, but this year we’re [close to the top] with important players coming back. Hopefully they can help us.”
