Arsenal legend Wright: Wilshere has same spirit as Adams

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Jack Wilshere deserves the club captaincy.

Wright has likened Wilshere to former Gunners captain Tony Adams.

He told The Sun: "Jack is Arsenal's driving force. He is the one looking to get forward, make tackles and help change the game. I look into his eyes when he plays and I can see the same determination and courage I saw in Tony Adams. I knew Tony would be dependable in any North London derby. He would be well up for it and I think Jack is, too.

"He is right for the captaincy now. He leads by example."
