Former Hammer races to former team mate’s defence

Former Hammer Jack Wilshere has raced to his Arsenal’s old teammate defence.  Mesut Ozil was left out of the Arsenal’s 25 man squad published by the Premier League despite being paid a whooping £350,000 per week for not playing.

In response to a social media statement, Gary Lineker said “Every footballer wants to play. Not being able to, regardless of salary, is soul destroying.”

Wilshere who had his contract with West Ham ripped out by mutual consent replied: “Spot on Gary, especially when you are the best player!”

The 28-year-old former Hammer remains a free-agent despite a cheeky Hitchin Town FC to keep fit with them when he posted photos of himself training in a park with Jack Wilshere’s NCF Elites.

The midfielder who received over £5 million a year plus agents fees to play a handful of games for the Hammers.

Wilshere is understood to have received around 85 per cent of what was remaining on his contract which would be about £3 million.

Not sure how sorry we sure feel for these two players being paid millions to do nothing, it’s a tough life!

  1. I don’t feel much sympathy for Wiltshire but this story does highlight a potential problem and tell us that we are not alone – it seems that Anderson had a disappointing debut off the bench for Porto on the weekend and didn’t make it off the bench last night – so it is possible that he will become another player (like Ozil or Jack) who cant get a game and no one wants to buy

  2. I hope he’s talking solely about Ozil and isn’t trying to imply he was the best player while he was here. In the 16 appearances or whatever it was he made in his two and a bit seasons with us, I don’t remember one half decent thing he did. Pretty anonymous most of the time.

    £100k a week to jump out of a washing machine.

  3. I must admit that my sympathy with Jack was misplaced and yes zahamoore the Anderson situation is very worrying……. Maybe the due dilligence to incoming transfers that Moyes makes is a very important part of a managers job detail.
    I have ZERO sympathies for Ozil who bears uncanny similarities to Anderson in temperament and lack of effort. If I Never see Anderson in a West Ham shirt again, I’ll be very happy.
