Adams slams Wilshere's lack of professionalism

The Gunners icon lead his side to a League and Cup double in 1998 and is unimpressed with the most recent high-profile Englishman at the Emirates, lambasting his work ethic

Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams has launched a scathing attack on Jack Wilshere, slamming the midfielder for his lack of professionalism.

The 22-year-old has struggled with injuries and has had his judgement called into question this summer when he was pictured smoking on holiday.

And Adams has accused the England international of letting his talent go to waste, insisting that Arsene Wenger wouldn't have had to bring in Mesut Ozil if Wilshere had been fulfilling his potential.

"He must show more hunger and professionalism. He's in danger of not fulfilling his potential and his career could be over in the blink of an eye," said Adams in an interview with The Sun

"If push came to shove, for a cup final or big match, Arsene would pick Ozil ahead of Jack.

"He should have taken it as a personal insult that Arsenal went out and signed Ozil when they already had the same talent at their disposal in him.

"He has to be more verbal, shake things up and show more fire in his belly."

Jack Wilshere has made just two appearances for Arsenal in pre-season, following his return from England's World Cup campaign, but could be in line to start in the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday.


Laughable that he's considered being anywhere near as good as Ozil. I think if he doesn't have a good season, he'll be gone next summer. It's getting more and more competitive for places in the squad. The only thing on his side, is the home grown rule.
