Despite the unprecedented scrutiny Arsenal’s manager has come under in the wake of the Capital One Cup exit, Wilshere remains confident that Wenger, whose contract ends in 2014, is the best man for the club.
"Every year we’ve been in the Champions League and there’s no other manager has done that," he told the Mail on Sunday.
"He’s built a legacy at this club. He came in 16 years ago and he changed everything. He brought the passing game to Arsenal and he’s been great to me. He showed great faith in me when I was young and stuck with me after my injury. So, for me, there’s no question he’s the right man for the job.
"When you have a few bad results I don’t think you can start blaming the manager. The players have to look at themselves. It’s not the manager’s fault."
