Arteta - Why Wilshere is training with us again

“We all love Jack, we're happy to have him around and he is a big part of our history.”

The news that Jack Wilshere is back at London Colney will certainly capture the attention of Arsenal fans - but what is the thinking behind it all?

Such is the way of football, there will be speculation that our former midfielder could be set for a fairytale return - so what's the truth of the matter?

"What you should believe is that we want to help Jack prepare for his next stage, physically, mentally," Mikel Arteta told Arsenal.com. 

"He wants to do his coaching badges again and we are prepared to fulfil all the needs that he wants. That is basically the idea and it is no further than that.

"I am very happy to have him back. We had a conversation with Jack and understand the needs that he has, the period that he is going through and I think everyone at the club agreed it was the right moment to help him. 

"We sat down with him and we listened to what he wanted to do and what stage he is and we are prepared to do anything we can to help him. 

"He is going to be training sometimes with us, he is going to be around the place, he is going to be continuing his coaching badges that he is very interested in, try to get him fit, try to get his experiences across to our players, our young players, our academy and I think it is great influence to have around."
