Ramsey: The decision from Wenger
Aaron Ramsey has expressed his delight over Arsene Wenger’s decision to not play him on the right wing during the Premier League clash with Sunderland.
Since the second-half of last season, the Welshman has been deployed as a winger to accommodate the inclusion of attacking midfield duo Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla in the same line-up.
But in the absence of Cazorla on Saturday, Ramsey returned to his old role in central-midfield which saw him begin the campaign as Arsenal’s top scorer two years ago.
After scoring only his second goal of the season in the 3-1 victory over Sunderland, the 24-year-old lauded his manager’s decision to bring him back into the heart of Arsenal’s midfield.
“I feel a lot more comfortable [in midfield] and it suits my game a lot better. I can time my runs into the box and get on to the end of things,” Ramsey said.
“On another day I could have had two or three goals but I’m happy just to score the one.”
Despite injuries to Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, Wenger has options on the flanks with Joel Campbell, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and even Theo Walcott all available.
