Wilshere rules out retirement; discusses coaching future

Released Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wilshere has dismissed claims he'll retire before 30.

Now training with Arseal, he admits he would be interested in coaching when he hangs up his boots one day.

Wilshere, 29, was released by Bournemouth at the end of last season and is still a free agent after failing to find a club in the summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports News about his future, Wilshere said: "At the moment I am doing my coaching badges and the club is helping me with them and I am helping some of the Academy kids out as well.

"It is certainly something I enjoy and maybe something to look at in the future but for now I still want to play. I feel like I still have a lot to give and something to prove which is why I don't want to finish playing now and start a coaching career just yet.

"It's nice to be back seeing some old faces who I spent a lot of my life with. Fitness-wise I am getting there and it's great to be back training with good players and the quality is only going to be beneficial for me moving forward.

“I'm there until January and there's no news on any clubs but hopefully something will come up then."
