Gunners boss wants more goals from the engine room.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called on his midfield to provide more support for Welsh wonder Aaron Ramsey after he once again salvaged three points for the club in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace, the Daily Star reports.
‘Rambo’s’ stoppage-time strike brought back memories of his extra-time strike that saw the Gunners beat Hull 3-2, to lift the FA Cup in May.
The victory brought an end to an agonising nine-year wait for some more silverware, and Wenger has since insisted that the rest of his midfield will need to begin chipping in with their fair share of the goals if they are to build on last season’s success.
And Wenger is wary that there is too much responsibility on the young midfielder’s shoulders.
“That’s too much responsibility, you need one or two around the strikers who can give you 10 goals. He is one of them for sure,” he said.
“His contribution will be good – I think he can deliver that, but we need two or three players like Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott when he comes back, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla as well (to do the same).”
However, Wenger knows just how vital Ramsay is to his plans, and couldn’t help but wonder what might have been had the player not been plagued by injuries last season.
“I hope that we will see this year at the end of the season the difference he could have made,” added the Frenchman.
“That means he will play the whole season.”
