Wilshere, 29, said: “Probably Cesc Fabregas.
“He played in the Premier League – just after the ‘Invincibles’ side – at 16.
“You won’t see that anymore. Even players like (Phil) Foden, he only started at 18.
“I learnt a lot from him as he was my captain as well. People don’t realise he was a great leader.

“He was a talker on the pitch, in the dressing room. He would motivate us and he was the dressing room he was the loudest.
“He would lead by his performances too. I played with him so many times where he would create around ten chances on his own and control the game by himself.”
When it came to his England team-mates, 34-cap Wilshere chose pal and Three Lions legend Wayne Rooney as the best of all.
He added: “For everything he’s done in his career, Rooney..
“He was an animal. Strong, quick and aggressive.
“He had an amazing football brain too.”
