Jack Wilshere was unhappy at Samir Nasri’s comments

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has hit back at Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri’s jibes at the Gunners, claiming that the north Londoners can win a trophy next season.

Nasri had goaded those who criticised his move to Manchester City and accused Arsenal players of having an easy life.

“I hope they are watching me now collecting my Premier League winner’s medal. I believe they have not won a trophy for many years now,” he said.

“I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles.”

His comments have infuriated Arsenal fans and Wilshere, who missed last season through injury.

“I don’t know what goes on in his head,” said Wilshere. “Fair play, he has won a trophy, but over the next couple of years our goal is to win a trophy and I can see us winning a trophy.

“Maybe he spoke too soon and hopefully we can rub his face in it next year.”
