Wilshere faces no action over Spurs Chant

Arsenal have revealed that Jack Wilshere will not be facing any further action from the club after he sang an anti-Spurs song during the club’s FA Cup celebrations on Sunday.

The Arsenal team took to the stage outside the Emirates on Sunday for their celebration parade following their FA Cup win. It was a chance for players and manager to celebrate with their fans and Jack Wilshere certainly enhanced the atmosphere when took possession of the microphone and sang a certain Spurs related song and encouraged the crowd to sing along with him.

The footage of the parade was broadcast live  to the club’s media channel which led them to apologise midway through for the swearing. Wilshere was later reminded of his responsibilities as player by Arsene Wenger but no further action will be taken over the incident.

Opinion: That song is one of the fans favourites, it’s sung at every game and people would be naive to think that Spurs players and fans wouldn’t have done the same thing if they were ever in that position. It shows that Wilshere is a true fan as well as a player and what a way to get the fans all excited and celebrating. Both Arsenal and Spurs thrive on this rivalry and rely on it to play exciting games whatever the result so stop vindicating us for something both parties are completely fine with.

For anyone who missed Jack’s song, here it is:

    Personally I think I’d be a bit embarrassed if a Spurs player did that. In my opinion your players should be concentrating on their own team and celebrating the achievements with pro-Arsenal songs rather than anti-Spurs. That said, I’m sure a good few other Spurs fans would’ve enjoyed it if it was the other way around. I wouldn’t be one of them but that’s just me.

    All the fuss is stupid though. He’d done the samething last year and hardly anyone in the media cared. I’m not offended, I don’t think any Spurs fan is, the only thing Wilshere needed to apologise for was swearing on an Arsenal stream – which is probably what he was apologising for on Twitter.

    Anyway, I think you probably meant “vilifying” rather than “vindicating”, they have rather different meanings 😉

    Oh absolutely agree with you, he was also singing pro Arsenal songs too though! It’s done every year but the media just seem to be on Jacks case more than anything this year, maybe because he isn’t playing well enough to have the attitude he does but it’s lazy journalism to make such a fuss of this!

    Unfortunately now the season is over there will be a few weeks of hack journalism until the transfer merry go round kicks in for real.
