It has been reported that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere admits he’s working with a sports shrink.
For the first time in several years he has had an interrupted pre-season and called this the “time to deliver”, taking onboard advice from a psychologist at Arsenal to help with that.
“He’s taught me that, if your head’s not right, it can affect other parts of your body,” Wilshere said.
“So get that right and enjoy your football, and that’s what I’m trying to do.
“Every time I’m on the pitch I just enjoy it. I’m not as aggressive, not as angry.
“If something goes wrong, a couple of years ago I would have gone to the physio: ‘Look, my ankle’s not right’
“Now I’m on top of it, enjoying my football and I’ve grown up. I realise things aren’t going to go my way every week. Of course they’re not. “You can’t expect them to, but the main thing is to give your all and enjoy.”
