Wilshere, then just a teenager, emerged as a key component of a side which also contained the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie.Injuries, allied to a succession self-inflicted defeats, saw that particular team fail to reach its potential, however, and after one narrow miss too many both Fabregas and Nasri departed in the space of two turbulent weeks in the summer of 2011.AdvertisementAdvertisementAlthough Wilshere sympathised with the decisions made by two of his former teammates, he struggled to escape the feeling that losing two such prominent players set the club back significantly.ADVERTISEMENTHe told the Lockdown Tactics Podcast: ‘Why is our best player and our captain leaving? Then you see obviously Nasri went to City. I got on really well with Samir and I remember having a conversation with him and he was saying w’hat City are building, it’s hard not to want to be a part of that’.‘I could understand where he was coming from but at the same time it hurt because he was so good for us.
