West Ham United midfielder Jack Wilshere has narrated how he battled with several issues shortly before his Arsenal exit last summer.

According to the Ex-Arsenal player, he considered retiring from the round leather game while battling with injury problems at the Emirates Stadium.

He also revealed that his son battled with seizures and that made him forget about football.

The West Ham United player went on to praise former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger for his support during his trying times at the club.

Arsene Wenger left Arsenal last summer after 22 years at the club, having led the Gunners to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup titles.

In addition, Wenger also led the North Londoners to two major European finals which ended in defeat for him and his players.

His exit was a major factor for Jack Wilshere while he was considering his Arsenal future last summer.

In the end, Jack Wilshere left his boyhood club to join fellow London outfit West Ham United on a three-year free transfer deal last summer.

Jack Wilshere talked about his struggles at Arsenal in a documentary on Athlete’s Stance.

His injury problem endured into his first campaign as a West Ham United player and that restricted the 27-year-old to just eight league appearances.
