Aaron Ramsey deserves huge credit, says Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger heaps yet more praise on Aaron Ramsey following his impressive start to the season with Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has heaped yet more praise on Aaron Ramsey following his impressive start to the season with Arsenal.
The midfielder again put in a good display at Fulham on Saturday as a goal from Olivier Giroud and two from Lukas Podolski handed the Gunners a 3-1 win and their first Premier League points of the season.
The 22-year-old Wales international has been one of Arsenal’s standout performers in recent weeks after an eye-catching pre-season campaign.
And Wenger believes Ramsey deserves credit for continuing to stay focused in the wake of his horrific leg break back in 2010.
“Ramsey is a young player. A year ago, he was highly under scrutiny,” Wenger said. “People had major doubts but I think he deserves huge credit for having moved forward the way he did.
“We deserve some as well because we continued to develop him and believe in him.”
Wenger added: “During the transfer period, people are so much focused on who is coming in that they forget how good our players are.
“If you look at our team today, you had [Carl] Jenkinson who gets a chance, you get [Theo] Walcott who has started with us, you have Ramsey, you have [Jack] Wilshere, you have [Kieran] Gibbs – all [British] players who get a chance with us.
“You should give us some credit for that sometimes.”
