Former Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has announced his retirement from football at the age of just 30 after his exit from Danish club Aarhus. 

Wilshere was once tipped as a future England captain, but despite his undoubted quality as a central midfielder and promising early progress, he struggled to shine at Arsenal after being hit by a number of injury problems.

He played 197 times for the Gunners, but in truth should have featured much more for a club he spent 10 professional seasons with having joined his beloved north London club at the age of nine.

At the start of this year Wilshere joined Danish Superliga side Aarhaus, but fans feared the worst for him and sensed his footballing days could be dwindling after he announced his exit from the club following just five months.

In a lengthy statement on social media, Wilshere admitted his pain of watching his career ‘slip away’ and rued the ‘difficult moments’ he faced after leaving Arsenal and battling to show his talent at both Bournemouth and West Ham United. 

Wilshere wrote: ‘Today I am announcing my retirement from playing professional football. It has been an unbelievable journey filled with so many incredible moments and I feel privileged to have experienced all that I did during my career. 

‘From being the little boy kicking a ball around in the garden to captaining my beloved Arsenal and playing for my country at a World Cup. I have lived my dream.
