The West Ham United footballer could be up to six weeks out of the field after he underwent ankle surgery last Monday

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has talked about Jack Wilshere’s injury after the footballer underwent ankle surgery last Monday.

The English Premier League coach believes Wilshere is upset about missing the next six weeks.

“He was working so well that of course, he was very upset about what happened,” Pellegrini said to Sky Sports.

“I spoke with him before he started the week. He felt the pain in his ankle.”

“He is a player, who is maybe not too old, but he has a lot of experience with injuries. I hope he will know what is the best way to recover as soon as he can,” he added.

“The club doctor can say more about it than me, but he has a screw in his ankle from surgery he had some years ago.”

“Maybe it made some movements so they had to take the screw out. We will see how many weeks he is out for,” Pellegrini commented.
