Wenger – Wilshere needs to emulate Lionel Messi 2

Posted on February 11, 2013 by admin

Arsene Wenger saw his young prodigy Jack Wilshere take a lot of stick in Arsenal’s game against Sunderland this weekend (and Stoke the week before!), but he doesn’t think that the midfielder needs to get extra protection from referees, he simply needs to watch Lionel Messi to see the way that re rides his tackles, and then gets up and gets on with the game!

We could perhaps say that the physical defenders in the Premier League are more likely to give out more punishment than in La Liga, but Messi takes it all and you rarely even see him complain.
