Coyle backs Wilshere for the future

10 February 2010 03:43
Owen Coyle is convinced he has been given an England international of the future to work with in Jack Wilshere. Arsene Wenger is clearly a disciple of Coyle's brand of passing football, having initially signalled an intention to let Wilshere move to Burnley on loan last month before eventually doing a deal with Bolton after the Scot moved into the Reebok Stadium hot-seat. After Wilshere turned in an eye-catching display in Bolton's 2-0 defeat at Manchester City, Coyle feels it is only a matter of time before the 18-year-old is pulling on the Three Lions. "We are always saying we want the best young English players playing, so they can play for their national team and represent their country well," said Coyle. "In Jack Wilshere there is one for the future, no doubt a big future. "He has such a fantastic level of composure, which all goes well, not just for us, but also for English football."
