Ex Arsenal Player Jack Wilshere has confirmed that he regrets signing for West Ham United.
Wilshere left Arsenal in 2018 after the he suffered with injuries. The England international left West Ham by mutual consent last month, leaving after two years and just 16 league appearances. In an interview with the Super 6 Podcast, Wilshere explained what he was looking for in his next club.
“I’m open to MLS, Europe anything with the right manager,” said the free agent.
“I think the good thing about when I went to West Ham was that they brought in Pellegrini who tried to make us a team that had the ball. Obviously, that didn’t work out for him. At Bournemouth, they had a manager who wanted to try and play and I had a really good year there. When I went to West Ham, I didn’t know it was going to be how it was.
“With my experience now, I’d be silly to go and sign for a team who are in a similar position to West Ham. When there is a relegation battle, teams want to nick a point and stay up, nick a goal and try and defend. That’s not the type of player I am. I want to enjoy my football and play 25-30 games a season.”
The 28-year-old made 198 appearances for Arsenal after breaking into the team back in 2008, at the age of 16 years.
