Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says he loves the song Gunners supporters came up with to mark his smoking controversy.
The England international had been under considerable scrutiny after being photographed with a cigarette in his mouth outside a London nightclub.
But Gooners don’t seem to be too concerned about Wilshere’s habit, especially not after he scored the equaliser in today’s match against West Brom.
They launched into a new chant in his honour:
“He smokes when he wants, he smokes when he wants, Jackie Wilshere, he smokes when he wants.”
And the sentiment was appreciated by Wilshere.
He said: “Love the new song for me today! Haha fans were incredible again!”
