Wilshere Reveals On Twitter Why He Gave Man City Fans The Finger

By on December 24, 2013

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has revealed that it was abuse about his children that led to him making a rude gesture towards Manchester City fans at the Etihad Stadium.

Wilshere was caught on video giving the home support the middle finger during our 6-3 loss last weekend and was subsequently charged by the Football Association.

The club accepted the charge but appealed the two-game ban insisting a one-match suspension would be a fairer punishment, but the FA rejected our appeal and Jack missed last night’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea and will also be unavailable for our Boxing Day clash with West Ham.

The midfielder has now revealed on Twitter that he reacted to abuse about his children from the City fans, but says it’s something he’ll just have to get used to in future.

Footballers may be paid a crazy amount of money for kicking a ball around but they are still human and nobody should have to listen to obscenities being said about their kids.

However, as Jack says, it’s something he’s going to have to get used to or he’ll be spending more time in front of the FA.

      I was sat near to where he gave the 1 fingered salute and I can honestly say that I never heard ny abuse to him bout his kids, they did sing about the score line however and that’s why he did it,bringing his children into it as an excuse is well bellow the belt and will only make things worse .

    He’s a fcuking liar, he wasn’t anywhere near the City fans to make out anything of what they said because the sound levels in a stadium are way too high. He would have had to be right up against the edge of the playing field to filter anything out, he’s a liar trying to save face because he was no where near the fans.

      True. This guy is not only an over-hyped diving cheat but a liar that makes abusive gestures towards children himself.

    This just shows how classless this guy really is. I was at the game and heard nothing of the sort. Hypothetically even if there was a few fans shouting (which nobody heard) about his kids why react like that anyway? What are you going to achieve by fronting every idiot out there who has never met, knows nothing about and never will meet your kids? It’s a pathetic emotive excuse and it is a lie from a petulant child that didn’t like it up him much like his team. Jack Wilshere didn’t like it that he was told to get up after he deliberately fell over after almost every clean tackle. He also didn’t like it that other players were allowed to tackle him before he executed his plans – how dare they! He didn’t like that Arsenal were completely outclassed but he did seem to like Walcotts offside goal. The ban is what it is, I don’t have an opinion on its severity but this guy is not only a diving cheat but a bare faced liar too.

    Lying little rat bag, the ‘future of England’s midfield’ has made up a lie to save face but people still know you was just sulking because you are getting worse season by season and city made you look a mug. My

    What a sad little liar, the City fans were singing Wiltshire what’s the score and he couldn’t hack it because they were getting a good beating. He a spoilt little Mard arse.

    These clowns are that detached from reality that they actually believe that the public would take in anything that comes out of their mouths

    The problem is they surround themselves with people that tell them anything they want to hear.

    He’s really embarrassed himself. Does he honestly think that a group of fans, in this current climate, would sing songs about his kids?

    So Wolshere or what ever his name is slips the middle finger to a crowd consisting of thousands upon thousands of kids then claims it was because of his own little cherubs being abused? Really?

    Pretty conclusive comments here methinks. Not a single gooner commenting from the away section (which is adjacent to the section giving jack wassheree some ‘gentle stick’ ) to confirm they heard anything like he claims. As already posted above many times it was a couple of choruses of ‘wqhat’s the score’ and then some ‘he’s gonna cry in a minute’ after he took the bait.
    Interesting that this works with the prima-donnas better than anyone else. CR7 got similar treatment and was almost invisible afterwards. Jack was still visible but only because he stood out as the starting point for MANY of our attacking moves.
