Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger has hailed Aaron Ramsey on his return to the team. Ramsey has been out of action since playing against Liverpool at the start of the season courtesy of a hamstring injury. Though in his absence Arsenal have done well, winning six premier league matches and remaining unbeaten in the Champions league, Wenger still believes the midfielder has a lot to offer the team.
Ramsey returned to action as a second half substitute in the 4-1 win over Sunderland and gave an assist for one of the goals. Wenger believes he is very crucial to the team and even compared him to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
He said “He is a player who is box-to-box so overall he pushes the team forward, that is what we want in our side. He can play in holding midfield, he can play if needed on the flanks as well. That’s where he is not happy but he can play there as well. He has a tremendous drive, he’s a bit Lampard-ish you know, where he likes to get in the box, likes to shoot from distance and has similar quality.”
When asked if Ramsey could feature in the Champion league match against Ludogorets during the week, the French manager had this to say
‘I don’t know, I will have to analyse all that now, with Xhaka back. We play now in the Champions League and then we play Tottenham. So I have to see who I rest and who I play without diminishing the chance of the team to win the game.’
