Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has expressed his excitement at working with new Gunners boss Unai Emery next season.
While a number of candidates were linked as potential replacements for Arsene Wenger, who has ended his 22 year association with the club, it was Spanish boss Unai Emery who has been given the responsibility of steering the Gunners back towards the top of the table.
Emery hasn’t yet met any of his new players, who are currently away on international duty or a summer break, but he has already conducted a review of the entire squad, with Aaron Ramsey said to be integral to his future plans.
Speaking after Wales’ 0-0 draw against Mexico on Tuesday, Ramsey gave his backing to the former Paris St Germain manager.
Asked if he was looking forward to working with Emery, Ramsey replied: “Of course. I haven’t spoken to him at all yet, but I think it’s an exciting time for the club.
“I can’t wait to get back there now.”
With Wales failing to qualify for this summer’s World Cup, Ramsey has a chance to impress his new boss on the club’s pre-season tour of Asia, where they will play against Europa League winners Atletico Madrid, Emery’s former side PSG, and fellow Premier League side and FA Cup winners, Chelsea.
