Arsenal ace Ramsey now a world class midfielder, says Jenko

Aaron Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey’s sizzling form means he can be classed as one of the best midfielders in the world.

That’s according to Arsenal team-mate Carl Jenkinson, who believes the impressive displays from Gunners star Ramsey have helped Arsene Wenger’s team enjoy a super start to their campaign – with only the home defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season the blot on their copybook.

Wales international Ramsey, 22, goes in to tomorrow’s encounter with Stoke at the Emirates in what has to be the best form of his career to date.

Observers have long spoken of his ability but argued that he has failed to live up to his billing when he signed for Arsenal from CardiffCity in 2008 for £5million.

Of course, the fact that Ramsey suffered a horror leg break three years ago in a clash with Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross is a crucial element to that assessment.

Now Ramsey would appear to have turned the corner and finally put behind him the torment of that brutal challenge and subsequent lay-off.

He has hit home six goals in seven games so far this campaign and his influential efforts have earned him high praise from right-back Jenkinson.

He said: “I’ve always thought Aaron Ramsey was a great player but he’s been absolutely exceptional this year.

“He is probably the most in-from midfielder in the world. I don’t think there is anyone better than him at the moment.

“It’s fantastic for him and for the team as well.”
