Xavi Hernandez has already completed his move from Barcelona to Al Sadd and now the Spanish club is on a quest of finding a player who can follow the legacy that was left behind by Xavi and fill in his boots now that he left.
One of the players who are being linked with a possible move to Barcelona and who can fulfill this task is Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.
Arsenal managed to secure a place in the FA Cup final for the second consecutive campaign after beating Championship outfit Reading in extra time.
Ryan Giggs is hopeful that that his compatriot Aaron Ramsey would be able to represent the Welsh National Football Team in the Euro Cup qualifying games coming up.
Ramsey’s fitness is quite worrying off late both for the Arsenal as well as the Wales fans.
He has been trying to cope with a dodgy hamstring right through the summer and he is not guaranteed at all to be fit when those qualifiers come along.
After a string of underwhelming performances from Aaron Ramsey not only with Arsenal but also with his country Wales, Ramsey has stepped up to all of the criticism that he has been receiving and stated that he still has not been able to fully recover from the recent injuries that Welsh midfielder has picked up and this is why his latest performances have been so disappointing in comparison to those made in the previous season when Ramsey was named as Arsenal’s player of the year.
Welsh international Aaron Ramsey has hit back at the criticism levelled at him for the poor performances in recent weeks.
The midfielder was a sensational hit in the first half of last season. Even though he missed a major chunk of the second half due to injury, he still finished the season with 10 league goals. This was highly crucial in Arsenal managing a top four finish yet again. This time around, things had to be very difficult for the 23-year-old. He has managed only two league goals, which has seen Arsenal drop outside of the top four in the early months of the campaign.
The start of the season of Arsenal has not been as exciting or thrilling as supporters of the club were expecting it to be as you have to take into consideration that the summer transfer window of Arsenal saw them signing Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy just to name a few of the more recognizable players that made their way to the Emirates Stadium in the previous transfer window.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has publicly stated that he wants the captaincy at the club. The Wales international enjoyed his best season at Arsenal by scoring more than 15 league goals last season. His importance to the team was demonstrated especially in the second half, as Arsenal struggled to replicate his goals from other players. Ramsey was once regarded as the best in Welsh football, but the horrific leg break that he suffered in 2010 appeared to have changed his career for the worse.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been criticized by Louis Saha for letting Paul Pogba go to Juventus before the start of the 2011-12 Season.
Pogba, the French midfielder, has proved to be a great asset for Juventus in the last couple of seasons. He has struck 12 times in 63 league appearances for the Italian club.
Pogba had not been getting starting opportunities on a regular basis at Old Trafford and that’s why, he opted for an away move in 2012. Despite him being so young and so talented, Sir Alex didn’t make any attempt to make him stay.
Barcelona is still monitoring the situation of Aaron Ramsey despite Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisting his star Welshman is not for sale at any price.
Ramsey was a revelation for the North London giants last season where he finished as the club’s player of the season and also helped the Gunners end their eight year trophy drought by helping them to the FA Cup with the winning goal in extra time.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has stated that he wants to win the FA Cup this year and end the incredible trophy drought that has haunted the club for the last nine years. Arsenal will be taking on Hull city in the FA Cup final on Sunday looking to lift the trophy, which was also the last major title in 2005. Since then, they have suffered several defeats in the last stages of competitions and this also includes the 2006 Champions League final as well. Ramsey’s return to the team after a spell on the sidelines has coincided with an improvement in form.
