Jack Wilshere announces retirement; set to be named Arsenal Under-18s coach

Former England midfielder Jack Wilshere has announced his retirement from football, with the 30-year-old set to join Arsenal as an Under-18 coach.

Wilshere burst onto the scene for the Gunners during the 2010/11 season following a promising loan spell with Bolton Wanderers.

He would go on to make 125 Premier League appearances for Arsenal and also establish himself as a regular for England – he collected 34 caps overall – before injuries began to take their toll on his career.

Underwhelming spells at Bournemouth (twice) and West Ham followed, before he made a surprise move to Aarhus in Denmark in 2022.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that he would be released following the expiration of his contract, and Wilshere has now confirmed that he is hanging up his boots.
