Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger believes the “dynamic” Jack Wilshere is already one of the best central midfielders in the world.
The England international has shone at both club and national level since returning from 17 months on the sidelines this season.
I would say that Jack Wilshere has very good movement, he’s very dynamic and has a good left footBastian Schweinsteiger
Schweinsteiger has taken note of Wilshere’s performances, and says he and his team-mates will work hard to curtail the 21-year-old’s impact on Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 tie at Emirates Stadium.
“If you look at Jack Wilshere, he’s an excellent player,” Schweinsteiger said. “He was out with injury for a long time but now he’s back and shows really good quality going forward.
“I don’t think one player makes a team. In his position, he’s one of the best players there are.
“He’s a very difficult opponent. We will of course try to minimise the effect that he has on the game but don’t forget that Arsenal are a very good team and have 10 other very good players.
“I would say that Jack Wilshere has very good movement, he’s very dynamic and has a good left foot. He’s got a real eye for the way he sees his players around him. I would say those are his main talents.”
