Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted he regrets Jack Wilshere’s loan move to Bournemouth because he is left with few players in midfield who are available.
Wilshere left the Gunners last summer for a season-long deal to Bournemouth in bid to get more match times and prove his fitness level.
The England midfielder has savored a run of games at Bournemouth and that is something he failed to do while at Arsenal in three years because of injuries.
Arsenal cannot recall Wilshere despite their injury problems in the midfield like Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, while Mohamed Elneny is away with his national team Egypt in the African National Cup.
When askey if his is regretting allowing Wilshere to leave on loan, Wenger replied as per Sky Sports: “Yes, I could use him now.
“But if he had not played until now, he would not be ready to play now. What looks unfair at some moments in the season is that you know at some stage you could need the player.
“But even at the start you need to have the right balance between competition and numbers and chances for the player to play. And still today I think it was the right decision for him to go.”
