Arsenal’s Bukakyo Saka posted on Jack Wilshere’s Instagram ‘all best brothers’ after he signed with Danish club, Aarhus Gymnastikforening.
Months after training with Arsenal in north London as a free agent, Wilshere will begin the next chapter of his footballing life in Denmark.
When I was 30, I posted on Instagram that he ‘can’t wait to get started’, a number of players, including the likes of Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Alexandre Lacazette all wish him the best.
Unless you are an absolute football enthusiast and know almost every league in Europe or you are an expert on Denmark’s top league, many people will ask who is Aarhus Gymnastikforening?
They are not even the top dogs in the Danish league because that is Copenhagen, as are other famous teams, such as FC Midtjylland and Brondby, who have competed in Europe before.
Aarhus Gymnastikforening is actually a seventh ranked team in Denmark and they won the title for the last time in 1986.
Either way, this is an unexpected move from Wilshere and one that he will hope will bring him happiness and success in his football story.
With the duo of Hale-End, Saka and Smith Rowe, thriving in an Arsenal shirt, it just shows how far you can fall into the footballing abyss if things don’t go your way.
When Wilshere was their age, he was considered more of a style, and at his current age he is expected to be a senior England international.
But he’s moved away from that now, with injuries, lack of game time and good form and really hurting most of his career.
At one point, given that he was training with Mikel Arteta, some questioned whether he would be re-registered by the club.
Well, with him currently heading to Denmark, it proves that’s never going to happen.
