The Arsenal star was part of a Wales side that held Belgium to a goalless draw in Brussels on Sunday, which sees his side miraculously maintain their grip on top spot in Group B of the Euro 2016 qualifying stages.
He has revealed however, that the match was a struggle, and that he is not 100% fit following his injury.
“It’s going to take a few more games for me to get back to my best, but I’m not worried,” he said.
“I’ll be honest and say I’m still not 100% physically there.”
Arsenal are yet again in the midst of an injury crisis, so the Welshman has to be monitored to make sure he doesn’t join an already lengthy list of his teammates in the doctor’s office.
Wales are performing way above expectations in the competition this season, so it’s understandable that he wants to keep the momentum going. He needs to know his limits and not push himself too hard though, as a recurrence of his injury will benefit no one.
The Gunners face Manchester United this weekend in a crunch Premier League match, and Arsene Wenger will be hoping Ramsey can replicate some of the form he showed last season.
