Manager Arsene Wenger knows Arsenal must be satisfied Jack Wilshere is completely ready to tackle both the physical demands of the Premier League and England's World Cup campaign before returning him to action.
Wilshere has been sidelined since suffering a hairline fracture in his foot while playing for the Three Lions in the 1-0 win over Denmark at Wembley on March 5.
The combative 22-year-old is expected to be back in contention for the last game of the Premier League campaign at Norwich and then the FA Cup final against Hull at Wembley on May 17, before attentions turn to Roy Hodgson's final plans for Brazil.
Wilshere has endured several injury setbacks since breaking into the Arsenal first team as a 16-year-old, and Wenger knows both club and country have to be patient.
"I don't want to rush his fitness. If he wants to come back he needs to be fully fit, for that I believe it is very important that we don't rush him," said Wenger, whose side will look to take a firm grip on a top-four finish with victory over Newcastle on Monday night.
"We want to do the basic work on his stamina so he can support the demands of the Premier League and the World Cup.
"This time we will take the needed time to build the basic fitness up on a very strong level."
Wenger feels at the moment there should be no concerns over Wilshere's availability with England.
"I have spoken to Roy about that and Roy looks to be very keen to take him," the Arsenal boss said.
"I just re-assured him that normally he would be fit if we don't have any setbacks with him."
Following the dismissal of David Moyes at Manchester United, Wenger warned the current sacking climate will have a detrimental impact on attracting the highest calibre of managers to the Premier League.
The 64-year-old French coach, now the longest serving boss in the top flight following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, believes clubs must "be stronger" in the face of what is 24/7 analysis around the globe.
"After every game there is a trial going on everywhere. The clubs need to be stronger or give in," he said.
"You know we have some countries like Brazil who have five or six managers at the same club in the same season, but they don't have any football any more.
"Nobody will trust a young player and he knows if he loses one game he is out, nobody will educate any player.
"You have to define the policy of a club and be much stronger than before and stick to it."
Wenger rejected suggestions clubs should be prevented from sacking managers until the end of the season.
"I don't think it will work as people who invest money will say we want the freedom to sack people we want to sack. I just think it's in their own interest to have technical stability," he said.
"You will see no matter if you have 20 millionaires in the Premier League, three will go down, one will win the championship and that will be the end result."
Wenger added: " Ferguson and myself are exceptions in the history of English football, but I don't think that period is over.
"What is very important is when a manager goes through a period of crisis, (it is) how they come out of it every time.
"I think Moyes came in at the wrong period and when you don't have a good start you are questioned - especially at a club like Manchester United, who are used to winning the championships."
