Jack Wilshere made his second start for Bournemouth at the weekend in their 1-0 win over Everton and manager, Eddie Howe, has been praising the Arsenal man once again.
Showing a humility not often found in players once they make the breakthrough at a top four club, Wilshere has demonstrated that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get back to his absolute best, and Howe has called him ‘brave’ for taking such a decision.
“He’s picked a very brave decision for me.
“He’s gone to a smaller club, he’s gone somewhere where there’s not everything here, there’s not everything done for him.
“It’s slightly old fashioned in the way that it’s like a step back in time for him compared with other Premier League clubs and I think he deserves credit for that.
“I believe our environment can be good for him because the players work incredibly hard, they push themselves to improve and I think that’s a healthy environment for any footballer and that’s why I think he decided to come here ultimately.
“I just want to manage his workload so that he stays fit.
“I think that’s really important for him and I think he recognises that the most important thing isn’t Jack, it’s the team.”
Jack had a 100% pass completion rate on Saturday against the Toffees in the 76 minutes he was on the pitch.
Looking to complete 90 minutes for the first time in two years in the league, he is certainly getting closer.
