Bayern star Schweinsteiger acclaims Arsenal young gun Wilshere

Bayern Munich midfield ace Bastian Schweinsteiger has heaped praise on Arsenal counterpart Jack Wilshere ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League clash.

The Bavarian powerhouse head to the Emirates Stadium tomorrow night for the Round of 16 first leg and Schweinsteiger is well aware of the threat that 21-year old Wilshere possesses in midfielder for the Gunners.

"Yes the days are gone when they had players like Tony Adams or Thierry Henry - maybe they are still wishing for those players," he said.

"But they still have a good team. You only have to look at Jack Wilshere who is an excellent player.

"After he was out for so long, he is back now and showing his form.

"In his position, he is one of the best players there is."

The German international added: "It has a lot to do with his size.

"Your typical English player is over six foot - I would say that with Jack Wilshere he has different movements.

"He is dynamic, he has a good left foot and he has a good eye for his players around him. Those are his talents."
