Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has questioned Jack Wilshere’s decision to go ice skating this week.

Wilshere posted an image on social media of himself with his wife and two children at an ice skating rink.

The Arsenal midfielder wrote in the caption: “Positive week, managed to get through 20 minutes of ice skating without getting injured.”

Wilshere is set to make his fifth consecutive start in the Europa League when Arsenal take on BATE Borisov on Thursday.

When asked about Wilshere’s decision to go ice skating, Wenger said the midfielder had taken a risk.

Wenger said: “It’s not ideal. For your balance, it’s not bad.

“But you fall down as well. For football, it’s not great.

“I didn’t know [about it]. I just heard.”
