Jack Wilshere could find himself in a bit of hot water after being pictured having a crafty fag outside a night club this week.

Arsene Wenger said he`ll be having “a word” with the Englishman after photographers snapped him having a smoke.

“I disagree completely with that behaviour. I need to have a chat with him about that.” said Arsene

“You don’t do what damages your health as a footballer. You damage your reputation when you do that in public.”

“I don`t know what happened so I can`t talk about any punishment”


No doubt this will open the age old debate about a person being able to do what they want with their own bodies versus footballers being supposed role models, and both arguments are fine, however being a former smoker myself I know how much of an impact smoking has on your health, which calls into question whether Jack is either a) just a little bit stupid b) not as committed to his career as we first thought or c) the photo has been taken out of context.

Wilshere did take to Twitter to claim “For the record ? I don`t smoke” whilst bizarrely posting a picture of Zidane smoking a cigarette.
