Although Aaron Ramsey is no longer a regular starter at Arsenal anymore, that has not stopped him from putting in some very strong and professional performances when called upon.
Ramsey, who is set to move to Juventus at the end of the season once his contract with the north London club expires, has had to settle for a much lesser role under Unai Emery as he gears up to join the Serie A giants.
And former Arsenal striker John Hartson has praised the 28-year-old midfielder for the conduct he has shown throughout the campaign.
“I think the form he’s shown, where he’s had a couple of the best months in an Arsenal shirt, is a credit to him,” the BT Sport pundit told talkSPORT.
“He could have thought he’s going off to Juve and not tried, like someone else at Arsenal whose second name begins with O. He has and gone in there and showed great commitment. I wish him well for the future. Arsenal didn’t want him and he’s taken advantage of that and gone abroad.”
As Hartson touches on, of late, Ramsey’s form has been impressive, especially considering the circumstances surrounding his future.
Against north London rivals Tottenham at the start of the month, the Wales international was arguably at his best, scoring the match’s opening goal and working extremely hard in a game where his side surrendered possession.
Ultimately, it was a display that summarised Ramsey as a player. He popped up with an important goal, something he has often done in recent seasons, and ran his socks off box-to-box.
Undoubtedly, losing the former Cardiff City man will come as a huge blow to Arsenal, but supporters can take satisfaction in knowing he gave it everything during his time at the Emirates.
