LONDON – Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is no nearer to returning from his long-term ankle injury after what manager Arsene Wenger says is “setback.”
Wenger says the 20-year-old Wilshere “had a little setback which is under investigation … He has pain again in his ankle.”
The England midfielder has not played for the Premier League club this season because of a right ankle injury he sustained on international duty in June.
Arsenal had hoped to have Wilshere back in action this month.
Wilshere is sure to make England’s squad for the June 8-July 1 European Championship if he is fit.
