Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey reacts to Steven Gerrard’s praise
Aaron Ramsey is thrilled with Steven Gerrard's praise for the Arsenal star
Aaron Ramsey says he is honoured that Steven Gerrard described the Arsenal star as the best attacking midfielder in the Premier League.
The Wales international produced a dominant performance on the wing for Arsene Wenger’s side in their 3-0 victory over Olympiacos in Greece on Wednesday night.
Ramsey, who recently returned from a hamstring problem to ease Arsene Wenger’s injury crisis, created Olivier Giroud’s opener in the Champions League clash.
Gerrard told BT Sport: “When he’s in that form, he’s the best attacking midfielder in the Premier League. You’ve got to play your best players where they want to be – and he’ll want to be in the middle.
“For me, [when he is] on top form, you build your team around Aaron Ramsey. He has got that ability, especially if he can get to the form where he was a couple of years ago.”
The 24-year-old has also scored two goals and made one assist in 11 Premier League games this season, including Arsenal’s third in a 3-1 win against Sunderland.
And Ramsey, who helped Wales qualify for next summer’s European championship in October, took to Twitter upon hearing Gerrard’s comments.
Honoured to hear that from a legend like Gerrard https://t.co/3ZGVNgKD15

Ramsey will be hoping to feature against struggling Aston Villa in the Premier League at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon.
The north Londoners are in second place and a point behind surprise leaders Leicester City.
