Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has launched a scathing attack on Jack Wilshere – claiming the Arsenal midfielder is ‘the most overrated player on the planet’.
Arsenal suffered a shock defeat to Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK at the Emirates on Thursday night, losing 2-1 on the evening.
Arsene Wenger’s side still progressed to the last 16 of the Europa League, winning 4-2 on aggregate.
Graham Potter’s men were a staggering 200/1 to qualify before the match and recorded comfortably the most famous result in their history.
Wilshere was replaced after 76 minutes and Keane slammed Arsenal’s attitude in underestimating their opponents, taking particular aim at the England man.
He told ITV: “Where do I start… I think Arsenal are a great example on how not to start a game of football. We can talk about being a shambles but they’re so slow out of the blocks – poor attitude.
“The manager summed it up. No energy, no desire, you’re looking for your senior players to lead by example.
“I always think, when Wilshere’s your captain, to me, probably the most overrated player on the planet.
“And they got lucky with the result at the end of it. But if you start a game slowly, no matter how good you are, it’s hard to get going. You can’t just switch it on and off
