Arsenal youth coach Jack Wilshere has hinted he is taking pointers from first-team boss Mikel Arteta after watching the club’s All or Nothing series on Amazon Prime Video.

After wrapping up his playing career with a short spell in Denmark last season, 30-year-old Wilshere returned to Arsenal in July to take charge of the Under-18 squad.

The former England midfielder has been watching All or Nothing, which was filmed last season and taking notes from what he seen from ex-teammate Arteta.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Wilshere gave his opinion on the Arsenal series and revealed he previously tuned into others as well – Manchester City, Tottenham and Juventus are among the other football teams to have been the subject of the cameras.

“I think it's a really good insight for fans but also for people like me who are learning to be a coach,” Wilshere explained.

“Playing with [Arteta], he was a guy who was very focused, very intelligent with the way he trained. As a coach he is very similar. He is very intense, very hands on with the players and trying different things, new techniques to try to help them. I like it. He's a modern coach. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. You've got to try these things to see that.”
