West Ham legend Hurst: Arsenal midfielder Wilshere invites injury problems

West Ham United legend Sir Geoff Hurst says Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere invites injury due to his all-action style.

Sir Geoff does not want to see the 21-year-old’s all-action style cost him more game time.

The World Cup winner told The Sun: “I do feel sometimes that because he’s such a wholehearted and aggressive player, who does fantastically well for Arsenal, that he goes into tackles a little naively and leaves himself open to get hurt.

“Having another injury so close to the previous problems, you start to be a little bit concerned about his professional future.

“There are certain players — and I’m not sure if you can say this in Jack’s case — who seem to be injury-prone.”
