Wilshere says that since his return to the Arsenal team he feels stronger and fitter than at any other stage in his career.
“My body is stronger than it was before,” he told the Official Arsenal Magazine. “I’ve done a lot of work with Declan Lynch and the other physios here over the past year. I’ve improved my core, improved my leg muscle strength - everything.
“Cesc [Fabregas] used to say to me ‘take it easy, don’t play too many games’. Obviously I didn’t want to have a year off. But when I’m 24 or 25 I won’t have played as many games as someone like Cesc, and that will help me.”
