Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is training with Serie B team Calcio Como as his search for a new club continues. Wilshere has been without a club since ending his six-month spell at Bournemouth after failing to qualify for the 2021/22 Premier League season.
A statement from Como's official Twitter account reads:
"Jack Wilshere is training with Como led by Jack Gattuso in these hours
"But he cannot be registered in Serie B because he has a non-EU passport."
In a recent interview with The Athletic,
admitted that he is suffering from his current condition and said he might have no choice but to continue working abroad because he feels he has been banned by English clubs.
I struggle to imagine I would be here at this point in my career,
" Wilshere said. “
When I go out, people recognise me. The most difficult part is trying to explain when they ask: ‘Well, why don’t you just sign for a club in England?’ I’m like: ‘Well, no one wants me’, and they can’t
get their head around it.
“I’ve said before that I’m open to going abroad. In fact, I probably want to go abroad. I want to try something different. Have a fresh start somewhere where people, clubs, fans don’t think: ‘Oh, that’s Jack Wilshere. He’s going to get injured today’, or, ‘He’ll play five games and that’s it… waste of an investment’.
“I feel a little bit like the door in this country has been shut on me. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because of the injury history and people getting references from places. I feel like that’s unfair."
