Speaking to talkSPORT, Wales boss Chris Coleman has hailed Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey ahead of the European Championships.

The midfielder is very much a key player for the Welsh team, having played a big part in their qualification for Euro 2016 this summer.

He is set to star at the tournament for Coleman’s side, who are being tipped as one of the teams who could take the big names by surprise.

His importance in the side is very much overlooked, with Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale taking the limelight.

Coleman though was keen to praise Ramsey, saying the Arsenal man gives Wales something that they have not otherwise got.

"All I expect from him is just to be Aaron Ramsey on the pitch for us, because there's no one like him,” he told talkSPORT.

“He gives us something that we haven't got. He can do things in the position he plays that other players can't do.”

In a Wales squad where the attention is firmly on Bale, it could indeed be Ramsey that proves to be the star man this summer.

Those two are very much the key players in the side, and if Wales are to be successful at the tournament then they will need both at the top of their game.

If that can happen, there is no denying that Wales could easily be one of the surprise teams at this year’s competition.
