Wilshere eager to end Arsenal trophy drought

Jack Wilshere believes that if Arsenal can end their trophy drought soon, then the Gunners will go on to enter a period of success to rival any in their history, Sky Sports has reported.

It is now eight years since Arsene Wenger oversaw the lifting of silverware by an Arsenal player, when Patrick Vieira captained the club to victory in the FA Cup final over Manchester United. The French midfielder, now an executive at Manchester City, scored the winning penalty in a shootout with the Red Devils after the match finished goalless.

Arsenal retain an interest in this year’s FA Cup after a 2-2 draw with Premier League rivals Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, with a replay to come next week. The winners of the tie will host Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion, conquerors of Premier League strugglers Newcastle United.

Wilshere believes that success in the FA Cup is a realistic ambition for Arsenal this season, and pointed out that the club is still in the Champions League, with German giants Bayern Munich the opposition when the competition resumes.

We all want a trophy. As players, when you finish your careers you look back and see how many trophies you have won, so we all want trophies, and the fans want trophies as well, Wilshere said.

He continued: “We are hungry for trophies and if we get a trophy this year, then maybe it can open the way for a few more. We have got a good group of young players here and experienced players as well.

So, if we get a trophy this year or in the next couple of years, we can really build something over the next few years.
