Published on: 23 October 2016

Jack Wilshere has hit backat comments claiming that he has no future at Arsenal, insisting his'power is coming back' during his loan spell with Bournemouth on the south-coast.

The 24-year-oldwas publicly criticised by ex-Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp last week, withRedknapp claiming that Wilshere has no future at Arsenal.

But the England midfielder is determined to prove the doubters wrong, and he plans to do just that by continuing to perform well for Bournemouth this season.

"I don't know where he got that from," Wilshere said in response to Redknapp's comment, as quoted in theDaily Mail."He is entitled to his opinion. I'm just trying to get back to what I was, enjoying my football and playing week in, week out and the Tottenham game was a massive step towards that.

"I've not really thought about it so how other people can comment on it I don't know.

"Sometimes when you're at a top club and you've been at a top club your whole career and you're playing week in, week out it is easy to get into that comfort zone.

"That is something coaches and managers drum into you and for me to come down here and taste a different side of the Premier League, where you have to fight for everything, fight for every point and work as a team, it is definitely out of my comfort zone."

Wilshere completed the full 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Spurs, he played alongside Harry Arter in midfield, who was involved in an off-the-ball incident with Tottenham'sMoussa Sissoko.

"He caught me straight in the face and if you get hit in the face anyone would have a reaction,"Arter said after the game.

"After the game he apologised. I'm not one to hold grudges. He said sorry, he didn't mean to do it, so I hope he won't be banned."
