Wenger: Ramsey is like Lampard

ALL THE SKILLS: Aaron Ramsey

Gunner coach praises his 'box-to-box' player.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is unsure if his “Frank Lampard” , Aaron Ramsey, is ready to face Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old Ramsey made his return from a two-moth injury layoff in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Sunderland and Wenger is thinking about starting him for more game time.

The Arsenal boss says: “He is a player who is box-to-box, so overall he pushes the team forward.

“That is what we want in our side. He can play in holding midfield, he can play if needed on the flanks as well.

“That’s where he is not happy but he can play there as well. He has a tremendous drive, he’s a bit [Frank] Lampard-ish you know, where he likes to get in the box, likes to shoot from distance and has
similar quality.”
