Aaron Ramsey has revealed how good he’s feeling following his run of fantastic form recently.
Ramsey is all too aware of the impact his injuries have had on his Arsenal career but the Wales international insists he’s feeling really good at the moment.
“I’ve been putting everything out there and hopefully it will continue,” he told the Standard Sport.
“I have adapted my body to the load of playing in the Premier League and am building up that fitness gradually.
“I’ve felt really good so far and hopefully that’ll continue for a long time now.”
Rambo’s comments come after Arsene Wenger revealed that Arsenal are trying to tie the 26-year-old down to a new deal. The midfielder has just 18 months left on his current contract with the club and the Gunners will no doubt be desperate to keep him in north London.
The Wales international has struggled with injuries ever since Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross broke his leg in 2010. Since his return in November later that same year after eight months on the sidelines, Rambo’s been out for a total of 377 days.
There were times along the way that fans and probably Wenger weren’t sure whether Rambo would ever return to his best. He’ll enjoy a run of good form – much like he is now – but then pick up another injury, be out for a few weeks, and fall back to square one. However, when he does perform well, he’s one of our most important players. Therefore, I can’t imagine us letting him leave, whether this current peak in form dips again or not.
So far this term, Rambo’s scored three Premier League goals and assisted eight – five of which have come over the last five games. Therefore, as the player himself says, hopefully it continues for a long time.
