Manager of Arsenal Arsene Wenger has revealed the reason why Jack Wilshere didn’t come on in place of Alex Iwobi in their 1-2 loss to Watford in the English Premier League.
Arsenal took a first half lead through Per Metesacker, but Watford drew level from the spot in the second half before a late goal in stoppage time from Tom Cleverly condemned them to a 1-2 loss at Vicarage road.
Manager of Arsene Wenger was about to bring on Wilshere for Iwobi with scores at 1-1but later had a change in mind, which the manager told the official website of the club Arsenal.com that a calf injury to Laurent Koscielny made him have a change of mind.
“I wanted to take Iwobi off and they told me that Koscielny had to come off because of his calf,” said the manager.
“When I wanted to bring Jack on for Iwobi, it was our last sub and Koscielny could not go on, so I had to change Koscielny and bring a centre back on. That’s what happened.”he explained.
