Arsenal boss Wenger backs Wilshere over England qualifications stand

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has backed Jack Wilshere's stand over England qualifications.

Manchester United's Belgian-born Adnan Januzaj could qualify for England in the future by residency.

Asked about the issue, Wilshere, 21, said: "If you live in England for five years it doesn't make you English."

Wenger told BBC Sport: "I agree with him. I always said also an Englishman should manage the England team."
