Ramsey revels in rebirth

MIDFIELDER Aaron Ramsey is glad to have won over the Arsenal boo-boys as he looks to drive the Gunners into the Champions League again.

The Wales international, 22, has impressed in recent weeks as he thrives in his preferred central role at the heartbeat of Arsene Wenger's side.

Ramsey's progress after a £5million move from Cardiff in 2008 was halted by a double leg break at Stoke three years ago, which left him ruled out for nine months. Now, though, the combative midfielder believes he is making up for lost time.

Ramsey said: "I think people are starting to realise I am coming back, looking sharp again – and there is no better feeling than winning people over, proving you are capable of doing a good job and you are a good player."

Meanwhile, chairman Peter Hill-Wood has played down reports Wenger is set to leave for Paris St Germain.
