Woodgate is delighted to have Wilshere by his side. “Jack has been good in the games he has played in and I am happy for him,” said Woodgate.
‘We all know what a talent Jack is and it is a shame that he suffered serious injuries during his career. It was exactly the same in my career. ‘
Woodgate acknowledged that Brentford are clear favorites, but added: ‘There is no doubt that these players can play in the Premier League.
“They’re good enough to be in it for the next five years. But we have to get them there first. That is the only important thing. ‘
