What does Jack Wilshere think of Tottenham?

From the day he led the famous Arsenal chant from an open-top bus to his recent appearances on talkSPORT, those feelings have endured.

There was an intense standoff in the studio when Wilshere was asked to wear a Tottenham shirt

Even the prospect of a new world record couldn’t overcome the former Gunners midfielder’s well-known feelings about Spurs.

Allow us to set the scene. A presumably pretty hot Wilshere is wearing lots and lots of different football shirts, all at the same time, in the talkSPORT studio.

Why? Because tomorrow is Football Shirt Friday and Wilshere is in favor of the cause.

In an effort to raise awareness about bowel cancer, in support of the Bobby Moore Foundation, the Complete You Know What Kit will be okay for one day on November 19th.

Wilshere was loved by Arsenal fans, but injuries unfortunately derailed his career

One will suffice, but to hammer home the message, Wilshere has tried to set a new Guinness World Record for most soccer jerseys worn at the same time.

Little did he know, talkSPORT host Andy Goldstein decided to throw a huge cock-shaped wrench into the works.

The presenter convinced Wilshere that the only way to break the record was to don a Spurs shirt, which the childhood Gooner flatly refused to do.

For context, the 29-year-old was at this stage wearing a kit from Liverpool, Arsenal’s Premier League opponents on Saturday.

Wilshere managed to break the record without wearing a Spurs shirt

The line has been drawn at Tottenham. And his position was so firm that it was even enough to make Goldstein give in.

As the presenter later revealed, it was just a prank. Considering the record stands at 260, there simply weren’t enough hours in the day for Wilshere to beat it.

Nonetheless, he donned a huge English shirt from the early 2000s to finish, just for good measure.

We can only apologize for what they almost put you through, Jack.
