Aaron Ramsey will miss Wales’ second fixture of the international break with injury, and he’s returned to Arsenal to work on his recovery.
Ryan Giggs confirmed on Saturday that Ramsey had withdrawn from the Wales squad with injury and returned to Arsenal for further treatment.
Earlier in the week, the Wales manager had told the media that Ramsey had suffered a slight knock to his thigh, which would keep him out of the first game of the break against Trinidad and Tobago. However, at the time, Giggs claimed the midfielder would return to face Slovakia on Sunday.
It appears the 28-year-old has suffered a setback against that timeframe, and we’ll have to wait and see whether he’s fit again in time for Arsenal’s next Premier League fixture on April 1st.
It certainly wouldn’t be ideal to have Ramsey out for any extended period of time, considering the fixture congestion in April. Arsenal have eight matches to play in the month, followed by between two and five in May, depending on how the Europa League tie with Napoli goes. Let’s hope he’s available for them.
