Roy Keane has aimed a dig at Jack Wilshere – claiming the Arsenal midfielder is ‘the most overrated player on the planet’.

The Gunners were already two goals down to Ostersunds FK at the Emirates stadium before the half hour mark.

They eventually lost to the Swedish minnows, losing 2-1 in the Europa league on Thursday’s evening.

Arsene Wenger’s side still progressed to the last 16 of the Europa League, winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Captain of the night – Jack Wilshere was replaced with just less than 20 minutes to play and former Manchester United captain was less impressed with the England midfielder’s contributions.

He told ITV: “Where do I start… I think Arsenal are a great example on how not to start a game of football. We can talk about being a shambles but they’re so slow out of the blocks – poor attitude.

“The manager summed it up. No energy, no desire, you’re looking for your senior players to lead by example.

“I always think, when Wilshere’s your captain, to me, probably the most overrated player on the planet.

“And they got lucky with the result at the end of it. But if you start a game slowly, no matter how good you are, it’s hard to get going. You can’t just switch it on and off.”
