I can't get a game! - Wilshere aims thinly veiled dig at Arsenal boss Wenger

Jack Wilshere has expressed his frustration over his lack of football at Arsenal, writing that he "can't get a game" underneath an Instagram post from former Bournemouth team-mate Tyrone Mings.

The England midfielder was told he could leave the Emirates Stadium during the transfer window by manager Arsene Wenger, but a move failed to materialise.

Wilshere spent last term on loan at the Vitality Stadium where a hairline fracture to his left fibula in April ended his season.

The 25-year-old, though, says he is now fit and ready to play and, when responding to an Instagram post by former Bournemouth team-mate Tyrone Mings about his new football academy, Wilshere hinted at his discontent with an apparent thinly veiled dig at Wenger.

"Do you take 25-year-olds who can't get a game?" Wilshere wrote. "I'm fully fit and ready go."
