Jack Wilshere admitted that he is “surprised”Arsenal’s fastest player in sprint-training.
The 29-year old is currently working with the Gunners’ team in an attempt to regain his fitness for his search for first-team soccer elsewhere.
Since then, he has provided insight into a variety of aspects of MikelArteta’s system. He was able to determine who the fastest player on the team.
To his surprise, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not the striker, who is well-known for his lightning speed in the forward lines.
“We were doing a sprint test today,”Wilshere explained this in quotes from Football London.
“I asked the fitness guy ‘who is the fastest player, is it Aubameyang’ and he said ‘no it’s Kieran Tierney ’ – it surprised me.”
Sports analysts STAT Sports On Twitter, confirmedTierney’s current maximum speed is 37.51 km/h.
The Scot is known for his determination and helped his team win two games over the international break.
Tierney also played all four Premier League games for Arsenal in his last season. He is now embarking on his third season with Emirates.
Arteta and his team were able to keep three clean sheets thanks to the ex-Celtic leftback. Tottenham Hotspur, a North London rival, was able to break Arteta’s back line as well since Manchester City had done five times in late august.
Tierney is considered to be the future of Arsenal’s defense, similar to Wilshere a decade ago in midfield at Emirates.
However, injuries plagued the career of the former starlet and Bournemouth released him this summer.
Arteta has welcomed back the academy graduate. Wilshere exclusively spoke to Mirror Football about how the Spaniard is doing at the club’s London Colney training facility.

“They have a clear philosophy and a way they want to play and I think that is credit to the manager.”
“He’s a very hands-on coach, he’s on the pitch, talking to people and shouting, pulling people where he wants them and making it clear to them really,”Wilshere went on.
“You can see a clear philosophy that they want to play out from the back and play the right way and I think they’re getting better at that.
“They have a young team that is improving at this and will continue to improve over time.”
He added: “Although I believe there’s a lot more to be done, they’re moving in the right directions.
