Emery Only Top Boss Not To Rate Ramsey?? by Dan Smith
Now that it’s been confirmed how much Ramsey will be earning at Juventus, I’m less angry about the whole saga. Yes, it’s another player we have let run down his contract, but I wouldn’t want the club to be giving anyone 400,000 a week. Some Gooners already hammer Ozil for getting 350 and not starting each week, we would have been in the same situation with the Welshmen.
Learning just how much interest there was in the midfielder indicates that clearly some of the world’s elite managers rate him a lot more than Unai Emery does. We need to back our new boss and let him build a squad in his image with his ethos and beliefs. Yet no doubt his legacy could be decided by this decision. If in 12-month times we are lacking creativity while Ramsey and Ozil are elsewhere, that to me would be a sackable offence.
How can a person become the highest paid British player to go abroad, when he can’t get into an 11 who have a back 5 and 2 DMs? How come Real Madrid, PSG and Barcelona were also interested at a time Iwobi is being picked over him? For Emery’s sake he had better hope the Nigerian starts working on his final ball. I’m not saying Ramsey deserves such a salary, he’s only gotten into double figures for goals in three years out of 11, always having a period on the side-lines.
It should though make Mr Kroenke realise where the game is headed. If that’s the going rate for a good midfielder, how much for a world class one? How can the American expect to compete with a self-financed model in an era where 400,000 pound a week is the price for an individual that his own employee don’t want.
If Sarri is under pressure for moving Kante out of position, in his first 6 months in the UK, then what about Emery freezing out our two best talents for the price of …………. the same points?
