Jack Wilshere, Arsenal Midfielder, Models For Esquire (PICTURES)

Not to be outdone by Gareth Bale, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has followed the Welsh winger into the pages of men's fashion magazine Esquire.

Sporting his new side-parting and donning a chic patterned sweater, Wilshere talked fashion and football with the magazine.

“I’m probably the worst fantasy league player ever. I don’t really score that often and I get booked quite a lot as well — when you get booked you lose points.”
