Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere who just got charged by the FA following his anti-Tottenham chanting during his club’s FA Cup victory parade has described his punishment as harsh. Speaking to mirror.co.uk, the 29 year-old said:
“Yes, that’s one way of looking at it, but at the same time people have been giving me a lot of stick for having some fun and enjoying myself at the end of the season. We’ve worked hard all year and we’ve won a trophy. That’s the best feeling in the world. No matter what job you do, if at the end of the year you get a promotion and a bonus, you’re going to go out and celebrate. So I think that side of things was a bit harsh. I am quite proud of always having had that bond with the Arsenal fans since I was young because I came through the club.
“I grew up at Arsenal and I love the fans, but believe it or not, I’ve actually got family who are Tottenham fans so it’s nothing
personal against them, it was just a bit of fun. I found out about the charge when I met up with England. One of the press officers told me. It was a surprise. I didn’t know I’d been charged so I was like, ‘what?. It’s being dealt with by the FA and my club. What will be, will be.”
