Aaron Ramsey once again showed on Saturday that Arsenal could very well regret letting him leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season after a brilliant performance against rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The Welshman scored another memorable Wembley goal after sprinting away from his own half and then neatly beating Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to find the back of the net.
It was also at the same end of the iconic ground where Ramsey scored that famous FA Cup final winner against Hull City in 2014 and it showed what a big void he actually will leave when he joins Juventus from next season on, not to mention the winner he scored at the death against Chelsea in the 2017 Cup final when the match looked set to go to extra-time.
In terms of experience and composure in these big type of matches, Ramsey is probably the best in the Arsenal camp and it could become a problem for manager Unai Emery in the future if he doesn’t get similar players in.
The midfielder’s performances in recent weeks have been nothing short of spectacular and it is really clear the respect that there is for him in the team and the stature of his presence.
At only 28, Ramsey is perfectly set to become a superstar in the Serie A and in a world-class team like Juventus, while Arsenal could struggle to find a player of his respectable calibre again.
The Gunners though will need to develop the likes of Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi to become something of a player like Ramsey, who steps up to the occasion, although it will be difficult to replicate that sort of calmness and precision.
It was clear from the very start of his Arsenal career that Ramsey was going to become the hard-working type of player that actually thrives off the ball.
The Arsenal faithful will definitely be hoping Ramsey can continue delivering showings like that before his departure which could ultimately lead them to the Champions League again next season.
