Wilshere told he’s ‘sacked in the morning’ after Arsenal FA Youth Cup hammering

Jack Wilshere was shown no mercy by West Ham fans after Arsenal's FA Youth Cup final hammering – despite spending two years at the club.

The Gunners took the lead in the Emirates Stadium showpiece but things turned on their head with the visitors running out 5-1 winners with Gideon Kodua scoring the pick of the goals.

Before they watched the trophy lift, the huge West Ham away following sung: "You're getting sacked in the morning." Having given the former Arsenal star a very tough evening.

Wilshere, who retired after a spell with AGF in Denmark last year, took over as Arsenal Under 18s boss back in July before their run to the final.

Still only 31, the former England international came within 90 minutes of winning his first trophy as a manager, but it wasn't meant to be as league leaders West Ham showed off their ability in the cup tie.

Arsenal fans had a chuckle of their own during the match after Declan Rice was spotted in the stands, welcoming him to his 'new' home.

West Ham fans, were the chants fair? Tell us in the comments section below.

One reply said: "Nice to see you’re adjusting to your new home."

A second wrote: "He’s one of us already." A third agreed: "He’s not at all there to watch the West Ham U18s. Nah no way."

For Wilshere, focus will go on their domestic campaign, having been praised by academy manager Per Mertesacker earlier in the week.

Mertesacker said of Wilshere earlier in the week: "I’m really pleased with his first year.

"His ambition naturally is one day to go somewhere and coach a first-team, but I’m not letting him at the moment.

"I think it’s important to be ambitious, but I think he respects the process so much more now."
