Wilshere ruled out of Dortmund clash


Jack Wilshere won’t be involved in Wednesday’s vital Champions League group stage match with Borussia Dortmund due to a recurring ankle problem.

The 21-year-old missed Arsenal’s last training session earlier before the squad fly to Germany later this afternoon.

Wilshere knocked his ankle again in training on Thursday and missed the 2-0 win against Liverpool.

Gunners’ medical staff are said to be concerned at the amount of times Wilshere has been sidelined with ankle injuries – he’s had eight since October 2009.

England international Wilshere is expected to return for Arsenal’s Premier League match with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Serge Gnabry and Kieran Gibbs both trained with the squad ahead of tomorrow’s match in Germany, although the latter may not be fit enough to start due to a calf problem sustained on Saturday.
