West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere out for up to six weeks after undergoing ankle surgery, according to Sky ****.
'I always think about one injury and it always plays in my head. It was in 2016, maybe 2015, and I picked up an injury in training. It was tough to take because I was making my way back to where I wanted to be and all of a sudden my four-year-old son was having seizures on the floor.
'It happened time and time and time again, every day for maybe three or four months and there were times when in the middle of the night I’d be rushing to hospital.
'Me and my wife would sit up most nights because most of the seizures were happening at night. So we'd put him to bed but most of the time we couldn’t sleep because we didn’t know what was happening with him, so we’d just sit up.
'I just forgot about football. I remember saying to my wife, "I’m not sure I can do this any more."'
'It makes you realise that football is not everything,' he said of his son's condition. 'A few people knew. That’s why I speak so highly of Arsene Wenger as well because he was brilliant. He said to me, "listen, you deal with your son, you take however long it takes".
'This is why this injury took so long. People don’t realise that. They think you get injured and they say, "he's always injured, he's injury-prone, he’s never going to be fit", but they don’t realise what goes on behind closed doors.
