JACK WILSHERE has revealed his infamous anti-Tottenham chants cost him a whopping £40,000.

The former Arsenal star was celebrating the club's FA Cup triumph during a victory parade in London, days after lifting the silverware in 2015.

Wilshere led three chants into a microphone from the top of a bus in which thousands of fans joined in.

He was found guilty by the FA of making and/or inciting comments which brough the game into direpute at the time.

And it is revealed his actions also caused a dent to his wallet.

In a Twitter Q&A with his fans, one supporter asked: "How much trouble did you actually get in for the 'what do we think of Tottenham' chant?"

Wilshere responded: "£40000 worth of trouble!"

The now Bournemouth midfielder was also asked on his views of legendary Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

In response to the question 'how good was Wenger?', the 29-year-old said: "The best."


Wilshere is hoping to reignite his career at Bournemouth after penning a deal until the end of the season with the Championship side.

And he bagged his first goal in 518 days on Wednesday when he netted in the FA Cup fourth-round win over Crawley.

Wilshere had been without a club since leaving West Ham in October but started training with Bournemouth in December.
