Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has won the Bournemouth Player of the Month award for the month of November. The English midfielder so far has made 10 league appearances for the Cherries.
The on loan midfielder always was the next big product at Arsenal and his passion for the club always has made him fan favourite, but his progression was braked due to several injuries. He managed to make just 5 league appearances in the last two seasons with Arsenal and was down the pecking order. So far his life with the Cherries has been rosy, as he has been playing some good football and has managed to stay fit. Under Eddie Howe’s vision, he has perfectly fitted and has been significant for the Bournemouth team off late.
Bournemouth are in a comfortable 10th position in the league and Jack has played a part in their recent resurgence this season. The on-loan midfielder claimed 71 percent of the vote following impressive 90-minute performances in the games against Sunderland and Stoke City, that has earned his the crown. Wilshere has proven to be a fine addition for Bournemouth and played a crucial role in his side’s 4-3 win over Liverpool last week.
“His quality on the ball, his technical ability, is second to none and I think he is so comfortable he’s made us a totally different team with the ball,” his manager Eddie Howe said of Wilshere last month.
“His defensive performances have been of the highest class, so I’ve been really, really pleased with him and it’s been great to work with him”, he added. Wilshere’s mentality, intensity in the training and his adaptability to the Bournemouth style has also impressed his new manager.
Arsene Wenger has also cleared his intentions to offer Wilshere a new contract and talks may start from January from the Gunners side to keep their academy asset at the Emirates.
