Arsenal star Ramsey ready to ridicule Giroud, Flamini and French company ... why?

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is looking forward to meeting up with Arsenal’s French contingent.


Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has endured a fabulous season for the Gunners.

He has gone from being a scapegoat in previous years to one of Arsene Wenger’s most crowned jewels – and Arsenal and Mesut Ozil in particular are missing him deeply.

The midfield playmaker played a major role in helping Arsenal top the Premier League in the early stages, and once again over the Christmas period before picking up his lengthy injury. In 17 Premier League starts, he has scored eight times, and has assisted a further six goals.

His dribbling ability, key passes and excellent movement really made Arsenal’s front-line tick, and German international Mesut Ozil looked a far better player than the confidence-stricken figure which appears now.

Despite Ramey’s injury, he has still participated amongst the group and kept himself busy by watching his nation compete in the rugby six nations tournament.

Ahead of Wales’ six nations clash against France, the Arsenal midfielder took to social networking site Facebook to post a picture of himself adorning the Welsh Dragons’ jersey.

Expressing his passion and love for anything Welsh, Ramsey added a little note, saying:

'Good luck Wales! Hope to give the French players some stick tomorrow.'

It is unknown whether Arenal’s French contingent – which consists of Giroud, Sagna, Flamini, Koscielny and boss Arsene Wenger – are interested in rugby, but then again, any excuse to throw in some friendly banter be it football, rugby, the Eurovision Song Contest or even the most obscure Winter Olympics event is well worth it.

Fortunately for the Arsenal ace, his side managed to overcome the French with a rather lopsided 27-6 score line – a result which will no doubt give Ramsey more ammunition to fire at his colleagues.
