Ian Wright: This Arsenal star never hides even when Gunners fans moan
The Arsenal legend is impressed with Aaron Ramsey's never-say-die attitude despite getting stick from the Gunners supporters
Ian Wright has heaped praise on Aaron Ramsey for his steely performances in the Arsenal team.
The Wales international has been regularly criticised in recent seasons for his patchy form in Arsene Wenger’s team.
Outspoken Arsenal shareholder Piers Morgan has been a very public critic of the 26-year-old midfielder.
Ramsey, though, was Arsenal’s man of the match in a goalless draw with defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend as the Gunners produced a rare resilient performance at a title rival.
The Welshman started to show signs of a midfield partnership with Switzerland international Granit Xhaka in the heart of Wenger’s team.
Former Arsenal striker Wright has heaped praise on Ramsey for his performance at Chelsea ahead of the north London side’s home clash against West Brom at The Emirates on Monday night.
“Ramsey never hides no matter what happens,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Even if there are groans in the crowd, he still shows up for the ball.”
Ramsey has scored one goal and has made one assist in four appearances in the Premier League this season.
The Welsh midfielder’s Arsenal career has been punctuated with injury problems despite winning three FA Cups.
Ramsey moved to the north London club in a £5m deal from Cardiff City as an 18-year-old in 2010.
