There are probably not many Arsenal fans that would agree with the above statement, as apart from one half season when the Welshman was world-class, he has regressed to being a run-of-the-mill workhorse once again.
But, according to his manager at Wales, Chris Coleman, the 25 year-old is an absolute genius! Gareth Bale may be one of the best Welsh players of all time, but Coleman reckons that if their opponents concentrate on containing the Real Madrid man, Ramsey can have more room to run the game.
“Aaron could go under the radar because of Gareth but I think it’s good for him, to be honest with you,” said Coleman.
“Gareth doesn’t care, he’s got that personality where he just gets on with it. And it’s good for Aaron, if he’s under the radar he won’t have a problem with that.
“Because all I expect from Aaron is just to be Aaron Ramsey on the pitch for us, because there’s no one like him. I
“For us, he gives us something that we haven’t got. He can do things in the position he plays in that other players can’t do. He can start play on the edge of our box and he can finish it off on the edge of the opposition box.
“I would say that some of his performances are the best I have seen from any Welsh midfielder in my time as a manager.
“He went to Scotland and absolutely ran the game. He went to Belgium in the first campaign with almost our reserve team and he ran the game. We dictated the tempo of the game and he was brilliant.”
“I’m a believer that you’re as good as your best game because that’s the level that you can get to.
“Some of the performances I’ve seen him put in are total dominance in a football game from a midfielder – the best performances I’ve seen from any Welsh midfielder, and that’s how good he can be. Baleo will tell you good Aaron Ramsey is. Whatever happens at Arsenal or anywhere else, I can only speak about when he comes with us. He’s on the ball so much, and when you’re on the ball as much as he is, there are going to be mistakes and you’re going to give it away.
“But when you’ve got the imagination he has, and you’ve got the confidence he has, when you try something it’s not always going to come off. But when it comes off, he can open doors that nobody else can. He’s as big for us as anyone.”
I am sure that many Arsenal fans are hoping for some excellent performances from Ramsey, in the hope that Barcelona come in with a 50million bid after the competition, because, to be brutally honest, with Xhaka now at the Emirates and Cazorla back from injury, I am not sure whether Ramsey will even be in Arsenal’s first team next season.
Who agrees we should cash in on Ramsey if anyone makes an offer this summer?
