EPL Jack Wilshere hails ‘unplayable’ Arsenal midfielder. Jack Wilshere, a former midfielder for Arsenal, has praised emerging talent Ethan Nwaneri and called him “unplayable.”
When Nwaneri made his first-team debut for Arsenal in their 3-0 Premier League victory against Brentford in September, he created history as the youngest player in the history of the league.
Although the 15-year-old hasn’t participated in a senior team matchday squad since then, his progress is being eagerly watched by Arsenal supporters who have big expectations for him.
Nwaneri scored twice as the Arsenal U18s drew 3-3 with Manchester United last weekend in the U18 Premier League Cup.
But after the game, Wilshere, who is now in charge of the U18s, was pleased with Nwaneri’s performance.
Through his post-game news conference, Wilshere remarked, “In the first half, he tried to find the spaces, playing in people’s backs and creating space for himself, and we did not locate him by a little bit.
“He was excellent in the second half. At times, he was unplayable. He had some enjoyable moments. Many players raised their game in the second half, and we were able to find some more space.
