Arsenal boss Wenger: Wilshere still five weeks away

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Jack Wilshere is still five weeks away from returning to action.

Wenger reckons the midfielder, 20, is still at least five weeks away from his comeback after missing the entire season with an ankle injury.

The Gunners boss said: "If Jack has played some games before the end of the season then it's a possibility he could go to the Euros.

"If he has not played at all, then I don't think it's realistic.

"I will only intervene if I believe he is at risk medically.

"If all goes well he will be back in full training in three weeks and then another two weeks to get match fit. But that is not certain yet.

"His last scan was positive and if he has no more setbacks then I think he will play again this season.

"But we have gone for a very cautious attitude with him and we will not force him into training with any pain. So we might have to be slower than expected."
