Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has admitted he made a mistake by smoking a cigarette but has insisted he will never be drawn in to it again in future.

The 21-year-old was photographed smoking outside a nightclub following Arsenal’s win over Napoli. Despite the incident Wilshere was recalled to Wenger’s starting XI for Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Brom, scoring the equalising goal which took Arsenal back to the top of the EPL table.

“Players make mistakes,” he told Arsenal Player. “I am not a smoker. I spoke with the boss and he asked me what happened, I explained to him and we sorted it out.

“He put me in the team and hopefully I repaid him. I am not a smoker so I think that will be my last (cigarette).”
