Arsene Wenger was sacked by Arsenal according to former Gunner Jack Wilshere.
It was widely regarded that the Frenchman stepped down of his own accord in May.
However, Wilshere claims the players were shocked when Wenger lost his job.
“I decided to stay and I got back into the team and they finally offered me a deal in January which was ready to sign, and then Arsene got sacked.
“It was strange, everyone was just shocked and Per Mertesacker, the captain, said a few words, and I think everyone was just in shock.
“It was strange. No-one really saw it coming, but it changed everything, and I wanted to wait to speak to the new manager.”
