He said on Twitter: "Shocked about news on Fabio Capello...gutted to be honest, gave me my 1st cap and believed in me! Thank you Mr Capello! £GreatManager."

Wilshere, who has not played this season because of injury, said Capello had had a "massive" impact on his career.

He tweeted: "People have there own judgement on Capello but for a young player who was given the chance to play for my country at such a young age...

"He has shown great belief and trust in me so I can only thank him....massive influence on my career so far! Sad to see him go!"
