Journalist touches Jack’s raw nerve

Hammer Jack Wilshere took to social media for a war of words with Sun journalist Phillip Gradwell

Jack criticised an article in the Sun newspaper which listed him with a fortune of £18m by telling his Twitter followers:

“Now I have seen some bad journalism in my time, and rude. But what Phil Chadwell put in the Sun this week is not only both of them but with what happened with Dele, it’s actually putting my family in danger. The Sun have basically given burglars a shopping list.   Not sure whether Phil Chadwell is is jealous or has nothing better to do than write ridiculous articles that are irrelevant and potentially harmful to my family. Please think before you do such things in the future!”

The journalist in question replied to defend himself by saying “What in there is inaccurate or gives any details about your family? I appreciate it’s sarcastic in parts but when the Sunday Times rich list information was sent over (a public document, so not a secret) I thought it was interesting that you were up there despite all the injuries”

It appears the journalist in question touched on a raw nerve in calling WIlehere a crock and injury-prone

  1. So Phil Chadwell would have refused the money? Blame the owners who paid, not the recipient.

  2. I agree GaryD – as with other players who have had injuries, I dont believe that tehy get injured on purpose – I am sure that Jack Wilshire would love to be out on the pitch giving his all – according to all reports it was Pelle who decided to offer him a three year deal – so that is not his fault

    Unfortunately in these difficult times with little football the devil will find work for idle journos like Phil Chadwell
