Aaron Ramsey hits back to Criticizers

Welsh international Aaron Ramsey has hit back at the criticism levelled at him for the poor performances in recent weeks.

The midfielder was a sensational hit in the first half of last season. Even though he missed a major chunk of the second half due to injury, he still finished the season with 10 league goals. This was highly crucial in Arsenal managing a top four finish yet again. This time around, things had to be very difficult for the 23-year-old. He has managed only two league goals, which has seen Arsenal drop outside of the top four in the early months of the campaign.

Ramsey has also not been very influential at international level where Wales have been doing well in recent years under Chris Coleman. This has led to criticism of the 23-year-old, but he has stated that he does not let such criticism affect him. One of the pundits who recently criticised him was former striker Charlie Nicholas, who branded Ramsey as trying to play too much ‘Hollywood football’. Ramsey’s most important contribution for Arsenal in the last few years came when he scored in the FA Cup final against Hull City. This gave Arsenal their first major trophy in nine years.

"Aaron's a professional and gives 100% week in, week out.Whether it's at Arsenal or coming away with Wales, he'll continue to work hard and try and achieve what he's been trying to do this season.He's a world-class player and we're lucky to have him in the squad along with Gareth Bale, players who can unlock a defence and do things for us," said Welsh teammate Hal Robson-Kanu. Wales managed to go four matches unbeaten after getting a 0-0 draw against Belgium in a recent Euro 2016 qualifying match. Belgium, however, had numerous chances to get three points.
