Daily Talking Point: Should Jack Wilshere Leave Arsenal to Fulfil Potential?

Former Arsenal player Stewart Robson insists Jack Wilshere should leave the Emirates Stadium to fulfil his potential, as Paul Gorst of the Daily Mirror reported.

Robson claims that the England international, who is currently sidelined with a foot injury, "lacks discipline" and needs a change of club to further his career.

The former Gunners star also believes Arsene Wenger must take some of the blame and Wilshere needs another manager to become a "world-class player" in an interview with TalkSport.

Robson is quoted as saying:

(Wilshere) lacks discipline. He wants to get on the ball and charge into tackles, there seems to be no discipline. Who does that come from? The manager. Wenger has to make sure he has a role in the side where he knows what to do when he does and doesn't have the ball.

He can be petulant at times, but why is he petulant? Because the manager (is the same) on the sidelines and it's never been sorted out. If Jack gets the right manager in charge of him, and the right sort of coaching, he will become a world-class player. Arsene Wenger in my view is not that manager.

Like many players that have gone on to become top players, sometimes you have to move on. Jack Wilshere will at some point have to move away from Arsenal.

So should Wilshere leave Arsenal to further his career?
