JONATHAN WOODGATE HAILS JACK WILSHERE
Jack Wilshere is currently finding his feet and finally enjoying his footballing career once again since moving to Bournemouth. He was released by West Ham United last summer after he did not impress enough at the Hammers to earn a new deal following the expiration of his contract. He has now been hailed by Bournemouth’s temporary manager Jonathan Woodgate who took charge as they beat Birmingham 3-2 in their last match.
Woodgate took caretaker charge of the match after the departure of the club’s former manager Jason Tindall pm Wednesday and has been touted as the third-choice candidate to take permanent charge of the club behind Chelsea legends, John Terry and Frank Lampard.
In the 3-2 home win over Birmingham City, Jack Wilshere was involved in two of his side’s goals, scoring one and assisting another as he helped lift his team’s spirits with a huge and much-needed win. Arnaut Danjuma and Philip Billing were the other two players on target for Bournemouth, who continue to hold on to the final play-off spot as the season gradually draws to a close.
Speaking after the game, Woodgate was engaged in a post-match reaction session where he was questioned about the club’s managerial vacancy and Jack Wilshere’s importance to the Cherries. About the managerial role available, he said he was only asked to take charge of the Birmingham game and that there was no other agreement between him and the club beyond that.
He said he was happy with how the team played, and most importantly for the win. About Wilshere, Woodgate said he is pleased with the midfielder who he subbed as a player with remarkable talents following his performances for the club so far. Those words will mean a lot to Wilshere, who recently joined the club on a short-term basis and would like to extend his stay with the Cherries.
