Arsenal boss Wenger happy to hand Wilshire start

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was happy to give 16 year-old Jack Wilshere a first start in yesterday's 1-0 defeat by Juventus.

"Do not be impressed by his small size because he is not phased by the physical challenges," Wenger told arsenal.com. "He really looks mature on the pitch, but he is 16 and we have to respect his development.

"However, do not reproach me now about not playing English players."
