‘What is going on?’: Jack Wilshere reacts to official Arsenal announcement

Jack Wilshere has shared his shock on Twitter to the official announcement from Arsenal that Steve Bould is leaving this summer.

The Gunners have confirmed that Bould will be leaving the north London club after a 33-year association with them.

He’s been in charge as the Under-23s boss in the past two years, plus he previously worked as an assistant manager under Arsene Wenger.

Additionally, during his playing career the centre-back made 372 appearances in 11 years with them.

Bould departs Arsenal with a legendary status, but attention will now turn towards who will replace him in the Under-23s position. 

Is It Harder To Win Than The Euros Than The World Cup?!

Ex-Arsenal player Jack Wilshere, who worked under Bould, has been left shocked by the news on Twitter. It’s seems fairly obvious he disagrees with the decision.

For Gunners fans, they will be extremely grateful for everything Bould has given their club because he bleeds Arsenal. 

A change isn’t too big a shock though given the way the Under-23s performed in the 2020/21 season.

Arsenal’s youth team finished 10th out of 13 teams in the Premier League 2 division table. 

There has been some super young talent to come out of the academy recently with the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe. But, they need to keep that production line going the best they can.
