Wenger: Walcott’s special case

By Daily Sports on September 26, 2016

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stressed he always believed in Theo Walcott, but has admitted the attacker has not developed as initially expected when he rose to prominence.

Walcott was dealt a major blow when he was left out of England's squad for Euro 2016, but has impressed in the opening stages of the 2016-17 campaign, scoring three times in six Premier League outings.

"Theo is a special case; at 16 he went with England to the World Cup in 2006, now we are in 2016 and he has still not played at a World Cup," Wenger told the club's official website.

"It was a big blow for Walcott not to go to the Euros. I spoke with him about the disappointment of not going with England. (goal.com)
