Roy Hodgson has heaped praise on Jack Wilshere ahead of England’s international fixtures, but insists he needs to curb his enthusiasm following his FA charge.

A lot has been made of Wilshere’s anti-Tottenham chants during the open top bus parade following our FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa – far more than there really should have been.

He will presumably now accept the charge – despite the ridiculous nature of the allegations – and look to concentrate on England.

Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson is certainly hoping that’s the case, as he highlighted how fantastic it is to work with Wilshere on the international stage.

“Jack is a very enthusiastic and eager player. He plays with a confidence and an air of enthusiasm which is a real delight to see and work with,” Hodgson said.

“We’ve been unlucky with Jack, he’s been with us for three years but has been injured.”

He went on to criticise the 23-year-old slightly though, demonising his behaviour during the parade.

“It was important Arsenal took that matter in hand and it was dealt with as far as Arsenal and the FA was concerned. He must accept that,” he continued.

“It’s not the type of behaviour we encourage or want to see but unfortunately young men do things they regret. We need to make sure he curbs his enthusiasm.”

Wilshere may regret his actions, as he is obviously not thrilled about being slapped with an FA charge. The whole thing has been blow out of proportion though, and like many others, the young Gunner probably feels he was just showing support for his team.

It seems as though The FA are merely making an example out of our man, so unfortunately Hodgson is right – he must accept it and be careful.

Jack Wilshere will find out next week the cost of his foul-mouthed anti-Tottenham chants during the FA Cup victory parade after being charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

Wilshere has until 6pm on June 10 to respond following formal disciplinary proceedings opened by the governing body, with an independent commission set to rule on the case which will have sanctions to impose a significant fine although a suspension is also a possibility.

On Sunday, the 23-year-old, who came through the Gunners' youth ranks, took to the microphone to mock the club's fierce rivals as the players celebrated on a stage outside the Emirates Stadium in the wake of their 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley.

In similar scenes to 12 months ago, Wilshere then proceeded to lead the massed ranks of Arsenal supporters in a chant which included expletives against Spurs, who again finished below their north London neighbours in the Barclays Premier League table.

Arsenal issued a swift apology from the studio presenter during their live in-house media broadcast of the event, while on Monday, Wilshere apologised if his actions had caused any offence and was spoken to by Arsenal staff about the issue.


However, after themselves having warned Wilshere following similar comments during the 2014 celebrations, it is understood the latest outburst prompted the formal disciplinary action from the FA.

"Jack Wilshere has been charged with misconduct in relation to Arsenal's FA Cup celebrations on Sunday 31 May 2015," a statement from the FA read.

"It is alleged his conduct in making and/or inciting certain comments during the club's open bus trophy tour was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.

"The player has until 6pm on 10 June 2015 to respond to the charge."

Jack Wilshere has apologised if his anti-Tottenham chants during the FA Cup victory parade on Sunday caused any offence.

The 23-year-old, who came through the Arsenal youth ranks, took to the microphone to mock the club's fierce rivals as the players celebrated on a stage outside the Emirates Stadium.

In similar scenes to 12 months ago, Wilshere then proceeded to lead the massed ranks of Arsenal supporters in a chant which included expletives against Spurs, who again finished below their north London neighbours in the Barclays Premier League table.

The England international earlier on Monday received backing from the Arsenal Independent Supporters' Association, but also drew plenty of criticism, including from former Gunners' striker Niall Quinn who said Wilshere had "overstepped the mark".

While falling short of saying sorry for making the remarks, Wilshere used a Twitter post to apologise to anyone who had been upset by them.

"Sharing back2back Cup wins with so many amazing Gooners is a dream come true. Apologies if I upset or offended any of u with my celebrations," Wilshere wrote.

Wilshere is set to join up with England later this week for the June internationals, and there is no suggestion at the moment that the Football Association are looking into the matter.

Arsenal, though, issued a swift apology during their in-house media broadcast of the event and are understood to have spoken to Wilshere about his conduct.

Quinn felt Wilshere, who also recited a popular expletive-ridden chant about Tottenham as Arsenal celebrated their 2014 FA Cup final triumph, should have shown more constraint.

The former Republic of Ireland international, who won the 1987 League Cup with Arsenal, said: "You want passion from your players, there is no doubt about that, but he has overstepped the mark once more.

"I think most Arsenal fans and fans of any club love to interact with players and love to feel their passion, but he has pushed the boat out too far once again. He has to act a little bit better from now on."

However, chair of the Arsenal Independent Supporters' Association Lois Langton believes Wilshere has been unfairly criticised.

Langton told Press Association Sport: "Much is often made of the so-called disconnect between modern-day players and supporters. It is hardly surprising that players are cautious about wearing their hearts on their sleeves if the reaction to Jack Wilshere is anything to go by.

"No doubt Arsenal will be obliged to remind him of his duties when representing the club in public, but Jack Wilshere showed yesterday that he totally understands what it is to be an Arsenal supporter.

"He has been with us since he was nine years of age and, for him, winning with Arsenal means celebrating with supporters.

"Jack simply reflected what is sung on the terraces up and down the country, week in and week out - the Spurs supporters have exactly the same songs for us."

Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust declined to make any comment on the matter when contacted by the Press Association on Monday morning.

Jack Wilshere mocked rivals Tottenham in a foul-mouthed outburst during the FA Cup winners' victory parade yesterday.

1/6/15

Many thousands of Arsenal fans had braved the rain to cheer the squad as they went on open-top buses from the Emirates Stadium to Islington Town Hall, celebrating the club's record 12th FA Cup victory after successfully retaining the trophy with a 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Wembley.

As the players, who were pictured celebrating in London after their victory on Saturday, revelled in the atmosphere, midfielder Wilshere took to the microphone, in a repeat of a scenario from 12 months ago.

The 23-year-old, who has come through the youth ranks at Arsenal, started a chant mocking local rivals Tottenham, asking the crowd: "I have one question, and one question only: what do we think of Tottenham?"... before adding: "And what do we think of s***?", then joining in as the crowd sang back: "We hate Tottenham and we hate Tottenham... we are the Tottenham haters."

Wilshere then continued with another Arsenal song, as supporters joined in the shouts of: "It has happened again, Tottenham Hotspur, it has happened again".

The microphone was then taken off Wilshere, but he retrieved it, saying: "We have got one more."

As the England international then started the chant "My old man said be a Tottenham fan....", which when sang in full includes more expletives aimed at Spurs, Arsenal broke off from the live broadcast on their in-house media channel. The studio presenter immediately apologised for any offence caused by the player's remarks.

Although not broadcast, the Arsenal supporters responded with chants of "Super Jack Wilshere".
