Arsenal’s Welsh midfielder, Aaron Ramsey has insisted that his team mates are ready to deliver a top four finish at the expense of challenger, Everton.
Ramsey, 23, has recently returned from a three-month lay-off and in his
absence Arsenal’s title challenge crumbled, and the North London club is
fighting to finish fourth and secure Champions league football next
Speaking to Sky Sports‘ Weekend Warm-up program, the former Wales National team captain rallied his team mates to secure the fourth spot, claiming that the prospect of being in the Champions league next season is the driving force in their remaining games this season.
“We are hungrier than ever to get this, the Champions League, to get into
that again – this is where we want to be,” he said.
The former Cardiff City player, Ramsey’s return has culminated in an upturn in fortunes of the Emirates stadium side, Arsenal defeating Hull City 3-0 last time out and the midfielder scored one and assisted another.
Ramsey, who represented Great Britain in last summer’s Olympic Games
soccer event and has scored nine goals and assisted eight others this
season insists the team is solely focused on the league and are already
looking forward to competing next season.
“That is where the players want to play and test themselves and that is no
different this season, to finish the job off and get back in for next
season,” he concluded.
Since joining The Gunners as a youngster in 2008, Ramsey has played in 125 games with 16 goals to go with, but his development stalled when he
suffered a leg break and ever since his return he has flourished as a key
man in Arsenal’s midfield and recently got nominated for the PFA Young
Player of the Year award.
With 5 man of the match award already in his name this season, it is believed that Ramsey would fire us through the rest of the season and also help deliver the FA Cup title in May 17 when we take on Hull City as we seek to end our 9-year wait for a silverware.
