‘Arsenal bigger than Juventus’ – Gunners legend makes bold statement

Aaron Ramsey departure is a frustrating one according to former goalkeeper David Seaman

Arsenal legend David Seaman has told talkSPORT (Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, 01/05; 07:30) that Aaron Ramsey is joining a club that isn’t as big as the Gunners.

The midfielder will depart the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer during the summer, ending an 11-year association with the Gunners.

Seaman was asked about the man who has played 369 appearances after the Daily Mail confirmed that a hamstring injury means he won’t feature for the club again.

He told talkSPORT: “He’s a great player and the frustrating part is that he’s playing better now and he’s leaving.

“He’s going to a club that’s not really as big as Arsenal and it’s frustrating. He’ll probably get voted player of the year.”

 

The 28-year-old has scored six goals and contributed eight assists during 40 games this season.

TBR Verdict

Seaman is somewhat deluded if he genuinely believes that Juventus aren’t as big as Arsenal.

Ramsey is leaving to join one of Europe’s biggest football clubs and although the Gunners are sizeable, they aren’t in the same bracket as the Old Lady at this moment in time.

The ex-Arsenal goalkeeper does have a point when he says he is playing some excellent football right now. He is arguably leaving the club on the back of some of the best form of his Gunners career.

Ramsey has seen injury issues rear their ugly head once again, however, and they have blighted his time at Arsenal without a doubt.
