He has a lot to give the game and is developing very nicely, but Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has pinpointed Steven Gerrard as the man he wants to emulate as he aims to be ‘the heartbeat’ of both his club and country.
The brilliant little maestro goes from strength to strength with every passing game and has shown us what is to come in the very near future.
Wilshere’s touch, vision, passing, energy and dynamism have drawn comparisons with Liverpool skipper Gerrard, who is arguably one of England’s best ever players and has guided the reds to such much success over the years.
As quoted in the Daily Mail he said: “I remember Steven Gerrard scoring a similar goal to mine in the FA Cup final against West Ham and also the Champions League game against Olympiakos. He is a great player, but I think I am a bit different – his long passing is better than mine,” said Wilshere.
“He has been the heartbeat of Liverpool for years. He has also been the stand-out performer for England as well.
“He is a great role model for me. If I can get anywhere near as good as him and drive the team forward like he does, then I will be happy.
“He was someone I looked up to when I was younger. He has 100 caps for England. For any young midfielder he is someone to base your game on and try to be like him.”
Gerrard has been a fantastic player both England and Liverpool and im hoping that Wilshere can bring as much success as the Scouse has brought to his club.
Young Jack is going to develop into one of the world’s best players and we have a real future legend in the making.
There is no doubt he is part of the Gunners future that we cannot let go, and a few new additions and the other youngsters at the club progressing like we need them too, then there will be success heading back to the Emirates in the near future.
