Jack Wilshere has slammed a Daily Mirror journalist for his article mocking the Arsenal midfielder’s latest injury.
The 22-year-old fell injured in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United and has since being ruled out for three months with ankle ligament damage.
Consequently, journo Richard Innes then wrote an article entitled ’11 Things Stronger than Jack Wilshere’s Ankles’, with the UK economy and eggshells included in the list.
But Wilshere has hit back on Instagram, posting a graphic photo of the moment he suffered the injury, along with describing Innes as a “fool”.
He wrote: “We all know the media like to talk nonsense, not all of them, but most! And most of it I can take…however after being shown an article in @DailyMirror saying I have ‘Worlds most Brittle ankles’. @bigrichinnes clearly doesn’t know what ‘brittle’ means, as this picture clearly shows’ most people/players would have broken their ankle if someone tackled them like this. Luckily I have ‘loose joints’, not brittle’ and only damaged ligaments. #Fool #GetTheFacts.”
