Arsenal fans react to Aaron Ramsey getting injured during the international break

Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal fans aren't happy after midfielder Aaron Ramsey was injured playing for Wales last night.

Arsenal fans have been left fuming at the international break after Aaron Ramsey, arguably the club’s most important player, limped away from Wales’ 2-1 win against Andorra.

The consistent box-to-box midfielder went down clutching his ankle with Wales boss Chris Coleman not able to shed any light over the severity of the injury.

Ramsey has been one of Arsenal’s key players already this season, featuring prominently in terms of goals and assists to back up his form during the last campaign.

With the clash against Manchester City due for lunchtime on Saturday, it’s a case of wait and see for Arsene Wenger as he returns to North London with the knock today.

The timing of the first international break of the season has often been criticised as it comes just three games into the Premier League season.

After a long wait over the summer for the season to start, fans are then forced to wait the equivalent of a winter break in La Liga before the fourth game of the season and the Champions League action gets under way.

Unfortunately, the schedule is so packed full over the course of a campaign that there’s no other time for the break to occur.

Should Ramsey not be available this weekend then Jack Wilshere could take up the Welshman’s box-to-box central midfield role.

Fortunately for Arsenal, central midfield is not an area of the squad where the Gunners are weak and Wenger can still name a strong side, which will be capable of beating the current champions.

What’s made Ramsey so effective is the number of times he’s been able to make late runs, undetected, popping up in the opponent’s penalty area to get on the end of a chance or a good piece of work from a teammate.

Here are the reactions of Arsenal fans to Ramsey’s injury and the international break.
