Wilshere apologises for Tottenham taunts during FA Cup celebrations

The 23-year-old caused controversy by leading the Arsenal fans in a series of foul-mouthed chants against their north London rivals as his team-mates paraded on Sunday
Jack Wilshere has apologised for leading several explicit chants during Arsenal's celebrations in the wake of Saturday's FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa.

The England international led a series of foul-mouthed chants mocking rivals Tottenham during Arsenal's trophy parade in north London on Sunday and was subsequently reprimanded by the club.

And the 23-year-old has now publicly apologised for any offence caused by his actions, tweeting: "Sharing back2back Cup wins with so many amazing Gooners is a dream come true. Apologies if I upset or offended any of u with my celebrations."

This incident marks the second time in the space of five months that Wilshere has fallen foul of Arsenal's code of conduct; in February he was disciplined by Arsene Wenger after pictures emerged of him smoking on a shisha pipe with friends.
