A very interesting interview on UEFA.com today with our very own Welshman Aaron Ramsey, and the injured Gunner reckons that Mesut Ozil is absolutely brilliant, but when asked who is the very best Arsenal player he has played with – he said Cesc Fabregas!
So his reply to being asked what he thought of Ozil, Ramsey said: “He has a great eye for a ball – he has many assists – and his weight of pass is fantastic as well. He finds those little pockets of space very well and links up the play.”
But his reply to the question; Best player you have played with at Arsenal? Ramsey was in no doubt in his answer: “Cesc Fàbregas. He plays in the same position as me and to have him to look up to when I first came here … He was playing every week, assisting, scoring. He was just a very accomplished midfielder, so probably him.”
I guess it is difficult to compare the two, considering that Fabregas made his debut for Arsenal when he was 16 years old and a total newcomer to proffessional football, while Ozil was already considered to be a genius before he made the move to the Emirates.
Wenger did give his reason for not bringing Fab4 back to Arsenal was because he had already bought Ozil to fill his space the year before, so perhaps Wenger prefers the German.
So, honestly, do you think Fabregas (when he played for us) is better than the way Mesut Ozil is playing right now?
