England manager Roy Hodgson says he won't talk to Jack Wilshere about smoking and has backed him to play for his country:
– Roy Hodgson
I trust Arsene to deal with that situation. He will make it clear, I'm sure, to Jack what his responsibilities are. I've had no problems of that nature with Jack, so I don't need to involve myself in it.
Jack's an Arsenal player who also plays for England. If Arsene thinks it's also good for me to have a word with Jack I'll be more than happy to do so but, as far as I'm concerned, it's Arsenal's responsibility.
