Jack Wilshere pleased to make winning Bournemouth debut

Jack Wilshere was pleased to make a winning debut for Bournemouth.

England midfielder Wilshere came off the bench on Saturday to inspire Bournemouth to a 1-0 victory against West Brom.

The 24-year-old is on a season-long loan from Arsenal , where he has been dogged by injuries.

It is hoped a stint on the south coast can kick-start his career.

“My biggest goal is to get as many games as possible," said Wilshere, who came on as a substitute just after the hour.

“If there is a question mark about me, I know that it's my fitness. So I hope to get as many minutes in, prove everyone wrong and re-kick my career.

“I'm feeling better with each training session. The sessions are intense and I'm getting up to speed.

“A big reason I came here was the manager and his philosophy to pass the ball and keep the ball. That's want I want to do.

"He's a great coach. I've been working here for 10 days. The training is hard and intense but that's what I need now.

“It was a good win for us and it was good for me to come on and get my first minutes and get used to how the lads play.

“I spoke with the manager during the week and he's got a plan for me so I was happy to be on the bench."
