Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey: I’m getting back to my best
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes he is getting back to his best form after netting in a 3-1 win against Olympiacos
Aaron Ramsey believes he is getting back to his best after the midfielder scored in Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Olympiacos on Wednesday.
Arsene Wenger opted to leave Ramsey on the bench for their second Group B encounter before the Wales international came on in the 80th minute to net the home side’s third and wrap up three points at The Emirates.
The 21-year-old was impressive in the Gunners’ 1-1 draw with Premier League champions Manchester City last month, prompting the Arsenal manager to hand the Wales captain a starting place against Chelsea.
Ramsey endured a difficult campaign last term as he continued his comeback from a broken leg suffered at Stoke City in February 2010 – and the former Cardiff City youth graduate is hoping to continue improving throughout the season.
“I am feeling good and confident again, getting back to my old self which got me here in the first place,” said Ramsey.
“Hopefully now this will kick me on again and I will keep on improving throughout the season.
“It is always difficult to overcome things like that in life.
“A lot happened last year for me, there were loads of things going on off the pitch as well.
“However, now I am feeling happy and hopefully that’s showing in my performances.
“It makes you stronger and it is getting over the mental side of it. As soon as you get through that, the confidence comes back and it’s a thing of the past.”
