Arsenal crock Wilshere frustrated with injury lay-off

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere admits he's frustrated over the progress of his rehab from ankle surgery.

Wilshere hasn't played yet this season due to a serious ankle injury which needed surgery. An X-ray has confirmed he is on schedule to be back in training next month.

"It's going really slow at the minute and obviously I'm really frustrated," he told "I should be back in training by mid-December, then I can crack on and it's up to the boss when he picks me.

"It's massively frustrating, especially after last year when we were so close to winning a trophy. We beat Barcelona at home and everything seemed to be going well and it ended sadly.

"I was looking forward to this season, I really thought we could push on and do something. To get a setback is massively frustrating but I'll be back in December and hopefully we can push on from then."
