Former England internationals Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand have moved to share their disappointment at Aaron Ramsey’s supposed play-acting in Arsenal’s Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain last night.
The Welshman got caught up in the encounter last night, with both sides going all-out to try and secure the win, and the assurance of having topped their group, but the two sides cancelled each other out with a goal each per half, and the final game will now prove the deciding factor in the standings.
The French side currently sit pretty as they look to win their respective group thanks to an away goal, and know that all they need to do is to match our result on December 6.
The occasion clearly brought out the fight in the players, with a few of them clashing, but it is Aaron Ramsey who has been brought under the spotlight for his part in the drama.
“I think he should be a little embarrassed by that. I thought the Welsh are meant to be tough,” Gerrard said on the subject.
While Ferdinand echoed those thoughts saying: “I think there was a bit of over-reacting from Ramsey. I think if he was a foreign player we’d be going mad.”
The Welshman himself moved to play down the incident, but claims he ‘thinks’ that he was hit.
‘Those things happen on the pitch, but it’s fine – we shook hands at the end and it’s nothing,” said Ramsey.
“I think so (he hit me), but these things happen in the heat of the moment. I’ve got no issues with it.”
Do you think Ramsey over-reacted? Was Cavani lucky to stay on the pitch? Are the former United and Liverpool pair being biased against our star?
