Aaron Ramsey has been recently criticised for going through a poor run of form, but the Arsenal midfielder has defended himself by saying that he is not 100% in terms of fitness.
Ramsey suffered a major injury and missed the second half of last season. He came back just in time to help the club win the FA Cup by scoring in the final against Hull City. Ramsey’s goals were a major reason behind Arsenal finishing in the top four once again. This season, he has been less prolific and has scored only two goals.
The injury problems do not appear to have gone away completely, as Ramsey missed a few matches this campaign due to a muscular problem. He has only played three full matches since his return.
The last injury that he suffered was against Tottenham towards the end of September. Ramsey was not very influential in the recent matches for the Welsh national team. The spotlight is once again on the 23-year-old as Arsenal have a top match against their nemesis Manchester United. A win for the gunners will put them in pole position for a top four place even though it is still early days in the season.
Ramsey expects much better performances once he starts to find his fitness.”It’s going to take a few more games for me to get back to my best, but I’m not worried.I think certain criticism from people is a bit unfair. It was tough out there again but I’m not worried.
I know my qualities and I’ve had a few injuries this season and I’m still getting back. I’ll be honest and say I’m still not 100% physically there,” said Ramsey. Summer signing Alexis Sanchez, who has eight league goals, has been the only source of goals for Arsenal this campaign.
It has been over 15 years since the former Arsenal player Ian Wright decided to retire from playing professional competitive football as the Englishman ended a career that has seen him performing in a number of clubs which includes: Crystal Palace, Arsenal, West Ham United and Burnley just to name a few.
Even though the remains out of the playing grounds, Wright enjoys staying up to date with all of the news that keeps popping up concerning football as he has even recently signed for BT Sport as he has turned into an active pundit for live Premier League and FA Cup matches as an analyst.
Robbie Savage has also joined the team of BT Sport as he was signed to make up a role as a co-host for a new television show.
BT Sport’s senior channel executive producer Grant Best said: “Ian and Robbie have proved themselves to be hugely popular pundits with football fans across the country and we are delighted to add them to our growing team of analysts.”
Not too long ago Ian Wright voiced his opinion concerning Arsenal and a potential move for Samuel Eto’o. During the recently concluded summer transfer window, Samuel Eto’o was a free agent before he was signed by Everton and Wright gave his point of view concerning Samuel Eto’o as he said that Wenger should have taken into consideration signing the Cameroon forward but it never happened as Arsenal signed Danny Welbeck and Eto’o was eventually signed by Everton on 2 yearlong contract.
Arsene Wenger had to make a move for an attacker after he received the news that Olivier Giroud was going to be out injured and it will take the Frenchman a substantially long period of time recovering and the manager of Arsenal decided to go with Danny Welbeck as he arrived with a price tag in the region of €15 million.
