West Ham manager David Moyes has been talking about his squad returning to training and he believes the break might have been very beneficial for Jack Wilshere.
Sadly, Hammers fans have not seen a lot of the midfielder since he signed in the summer of 2018, per Transfermarkt, as he has missed 61 games due to injury. He has recently recovered from a groin problem which ruled him out of selection since last October.
Speaking to West Ham’s official website about the Premier League returning and how the break has been good for Wilshere, Moyes said: “Jack Wilshere is another one who has got himself fit and in good condition recently, so we’re seeing signs of it. Jack will feel much better in himself for having come through the sessions we’ve put on and he’s needed it, but then others have needed that as well.”
It’s hard to disagree with Moyes here, as the player has practically now had a pre-season to get him fit and ready for football and now he can be a part of the club’s plans to finish the season successfully by staying in the Premier League. Wilshere’s quality shouldn’t be in doubt as he starred for Arsenal for several years, making just under 200 appearances, and has also won 34 caps for England.
Unfortunately, injuries have plagued his career, but it seems that Wilshere is currently in the best fitness that he has been since he joined West Ham, judging by Moyes’ comments; and it should be a huge morale boost for both him and his teammates as the Premier League returns.
