Aaron Ramsey’s derby display for Arsenal leaves boss Emery impressed

Positive role: Aaron Ramsey PICTURE: GETTY

ARSENAL manager Unai Emery was delighted by the contribution of substitute Aaron Ramsey in the 4-2 north London derby win over Tottenham.

As it stands, Ramsey is set to leave the club, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season, but Emery hailed the Welshman for his contribution to Arsenal’s fightback.

‘In the last matches his focus is there,’ the Spaniard said. ‘His focus is positive for us and it helps us. He needs to think about his future, for his family and for him, but if he plays like yesterday, it’s the best for him and the best for us.’

Asked if Ramsey could stay at the Emirates beyond next summer, Emery replied: ‘This conversation is not for today for us or for me.

‘At the moment the most important thing is he’s smiling, he has the commitment, the behaviour and the performances like (on Sunday), that’s the best for him and for us.’
