Wenger bans Wilshere for six months

October 17, 2010

There were some who thought Arsene Wenger was leaving himself a hostage to fortune by suggesting that the Premier League should consider six month bans for players who commit violent challenges. The predictable furore yesterday when Jack Wilshere mistimed his tackle on whoever from Birmingham was met with the usual dignified response from Wenger. Not only did he concede it was a red card, he has also acted on his own principles and banned Wilshere for six months. Anything else would just make him look like a hypocrite.

    That was far worse than the Shawcross tackle. He knew exactly what he was doing there, unlike Shawcross who actually went for the ball and not the man.
