The West Ham United midfielder used to play for the Gunners and he says the team still did well even after missing out the top four spots.

Arsenal is almost certain to miss out on a top-four English Premier League finish after the team drew 1-1 with Brighton and Hove Albion last Sunday.

And for former Gunners midfielder, and now a West Ham United player Jack Wilshere, the team didn’t do as bad as it might seem.

“They obviously had a few opportunities to cement their place in there, but it wasn’t to be,” said Wilshere according to Sky Sports.

“But they’ve still got the Europa League, and that’s another way in if they don’t get in via the top four.”

“But I think they’ve had a good year. I think they’ll be happy, the fans will be happy, and hopefully they can win the Europa League and end with a trophy,” he added.

“It’s been tough, it’s been frustrating.”

“To pick up an injury was frustrating, but I know better than anyone what it takes to come back, and I’ve worked hard to come back and obviously got some more minutes at the weekend,” he continued.

“I’m just taking it step-by-step, looking forward to each game as it comes. I wanted to come back before the end of the season just for my head and my confidence and to prove that I can come back.”
