Wenger: 'Sensitive' Walcott could be damaged by England experiment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is concerned that Theo Walcott could be mentally damaged after he struggled in an unfamiliar role for England against Italy.

The former Southampton man started up front for the Three Lions in Turin before being moved back to play as a No.10 behind Wayne Rooney, and he struggled to make an impact in either position.

Wenger is thus fearful that the experience could afftect the 26-year-old's confidence.

The story is too old to be commented.
