Wilshere’s abusive anti-Spurs chant


Wilshere sang anti-Spurs songs from the balcony last season following the open-top bus parade in north London to markArsenal’s 3-2 victory over Hull City in the FA Cup final. And, despite a warning from the club about his behaviour, the midfielder heaped more embarrassment on Arsenal as he celebrated their historic 12th FA Cup, sealed by a 4-0 win over Aston Villa .

Young children, along with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, were present at the celebrations as Wilshere chanted: ‘What do we think of Tottenham?’ before adding: ‘And what do we think of s***?’

Wilshere then continued with another anti-Tottenham song riddled with expletives before the microphone was snatched from him.The midfielder was pictured leaving a nightclub in the early hours before going on to Arsenal’s victory parade in the streets of Islington.

An Arsenal spokesman said: ‘Like any broadcast, we apologised when there was swearing.’

The 23-year-old, a second-half substitute in the final against Villa, insists his team can go on to win the Barclays Premier League title next season.

He said: ‘It’s different to last year when we had the pressure of no trophy for 10 years and it was almost as if we had to win it.

‘Of course we had to win the Cup as well but we could enjoy it more this time and take in the atmosphere and that’s what we did.

‘It was a comfortable victory and that was because we’d won the trophy last year.

‘There wasn’t so much pressure and we knew if we matched their intensity we’d have the quality to win the game. We did that. The big one for us is the Premier League. We’ve progressed this year, we’ve finished third and got automatic Champions League qualification.‘Next year we feel we can really push Chelsea, (Manchester) City and United for the title.

‘The competition is ferocious and it’s going to be the same next season — it’s part of football. I remember coming away from games like United away thinking “We dominated that game” but we never really got anything for it. So I think this year was a big thing.

‘We’ve got players who can hurt teams with (Alexis) Sanchez and (Mesut) Ozil, world-class players we’ve added in the last two seasons.‘Ozil has had a great season, he’s settled, and Sanchez’s first season was unheard of. So we’re looking forward to next season.’ – Daily Mail
