Arsene Wenger’s influence on Aaron Ramsey is clear to see according to his new teammate at Rangers, Leon Balogun.
Aaron Ramsey ended his Juventus nightmare when he signed on loan for Scottish champions Rangers on deadline day.
Although the Welshman is yet to make his full PLS debut for Rangers, manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the former Arsenal defender, gave him his debut against Annan Athletic in the Scottish FA Cup.
Ramsey also came on in the closing minutes in Ranger’s excellent 4-2 win at Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night in the Europa League as he looks to build up his fitness after only seeing 98 minutes of Serie A action for Juventus this season prior to his move.
Rangers’ teammate, Leon Balogun, was recently speaking to German magazine, Kicker, about the former Arsenal man.
“You can tell right away that Arsene Wenger influenced him”, Balogun told German magazine Kicker.
“He can always be approached, has a very good understanding of the game, a good football brain, as we say in England.
“A gifted box-to-box player, who can score goals.
“Ramsey can be a good pacesetter for us with his experience, especially in European games.
“And a very pleasant personality off the pitch too, he has fitted in very well.”
Rangers play Dundee United at Tannadice Park on Sunday, 20 February, kick-off 12pm, where Ramsey could face off against Arsenal loanee, Tim Akinola.
