The Arsenal winger is well aware of the demands of the Premier League and the national team and acknowledges that conditioning is crucial as the end of the season approaches
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says that he is learning from watching Jack Wilshere’s past struggles that keeping fit is vital to ensure that he is at 100 per cent for both England and Arsenal as the season comes to a close.
Wilshere has, as exclusively revealed by Goal.com, been hit with a new six-week setback but his previous injury has taught his Gunners team-mate much about the importance of conditioning.
With the end of the Premier League season nearing and with two World Cup qualifying games away from home in quick succession, Oxlade-Chamberlain is well aware of the demands currently facing him and his colleagues on both fronts.
“I have learned fast from Jack and his big injury last year to see the way he goes about his work to make sure he doesn’t get injured,” he told the FA’s official website.
“The hard work he puts in is second to none.
“So far, I have been lucky to not have any injuries. They are part and parcel of the game and you have to make sure you know what is best for you and how to keep yourself as fit as possible.”
